Other comparable paintings can be found in the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris, including an album with several closely-related paintings (ARABE 6077, described but unillustrated in 'Revues de Bibliothèques', Dixième Année-1900, pp.168-171). They too are attributed to the first half of the eighteenth century, and share similar page layout including comparable corner-pieces and ebru margins (see folios 11b and 12a).
One of the Sloane albums in the British museum (SL 5258), named Habits of the Grand Signor’s Court, was produced slightly earlier, during the seventeenth century, and comprises a hundred and twenty-four portraits including Ottoman courtiers, officers and royalty.
