The physical features of Khosrow, the attention to details in his robe and the surroundings, for example the light shadow around the pearls on the robe, all point towards the style of Mihr 'Ali. Of particular note is the similarity in the treatment of face of the present sitter to the young boy in the background of a monumental painting of King Jamshid, signed by Mihr 'Ali, offered at Sotheby's, London, 7 October 2015, lot 300. Other works signed by or attributed to same artist were sold in these rooms, 7 October 2009, lot 69, 9 April 2014, lot 87 (both depicting Fath 'Ali Shah) and 24 April 2013, lot 109 (depicting Crown Prince 'Abbas Mirza). Each of these three royal portraits portray the sitter with the typical broad shoulders, slim waist, and wearing regal dress comparable to that of the present painting.
