The other sitter is also unidentified, although an inscription above reads 'Huzuri', who could possibly be identified with a sayyid from Qom who studied in Najaf (d.1591-92). The verses around this delicate portrait are ghazals by Ahi Torshizi Jaghata’i, a sixteenth-century poet who moved to Herat and was a companion to Gharib Mirza, a son of the Timurid Sultan Husayn Bayqara (see F. Mojtaba’i, ‘Ahi Torshizi’, The Great Islamic Encyclopaedia, edited by K. Musavi Bojnurdi, vol.ii, Tehran, 1990, p.252). Two portraits from the same album were sold at Christie’s London, 26 October 2017, lot 186.
