Catalogue Note

Inscription : "Aghari Hâji Mashq chod Kamtarin Reza-i Abbasi". This portrait is very close to another one depicting the same old man mentioning his name "Gyath", conserved in the Khalili Collection (inv. no. MSS 997), published in : M. B. Piotrosvky, J. M. Rogers and A. A. Ivanov, Heaven on Earth, Art from the Islamic Land, Prestel, London, 2004 and S. Canby, The Rebellious Reformer: The Drawings and Paintings of Riza-yi Abbasi of Isfahan, Tauris IB, London, 1996, no.104. Reza was born around the year 1565. He followed his father's profession and by the mid-1580s was active as a painter. After Shah Abbas moved his capital from Qazvin to Isfahan in 1598, Reza was given the title Abbasi, and subsequently used the signature "Reza-i Abbasi", although he did not use it frequently until after 1610. He was the most influential artist of the 17th century.
