Description: The portrait is of the type popularized by Jahangir, who commissioned many portraits of single figures set against a green background. Mughal portraiture was psychologically penetrating: Jahangir used portraits of his enemies as a means of gaining insight into their minds, as Field Marshall Montgomery is supposed to have done with photographs of Rommel. The figure is dressed in the Mughal costume, with a long-skirted coat buttoned on the right and worn over voluminous trousers. The pale, delicate colours and fine outline reflect the Persian tradition.
