A prince holding a falcon, style of Muhammad Hasan, Persia, Qajar, circa 1820
- oil on canvas, framed
- 191 by 75cm.
The costume and accoutrements of the present prince match those of the second of the Tehran portraits quite closely. Although of similar height, the painting to hand is slightly narrower. The profile of the arched top has clearly been altered and it is possible, judging by the slightly cropped lower part of the robe, that the sides were reduced at the same time.
