This is a fine drawing typical of the Isfahan school of the seventeenth century, but the face of the youth is slightly unusual, with a more rounded nose than normal and wide, almost oriental features. This facial type appears on a drawing of a reclining woman in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (12.223.3, see Swietochowski 1989, no.20).

There is a semi-legible inscription, probably an artist's signature, at the lower left which may read 'Kamal al-Katib' or 'Jamal al-Katib'.
