Summary

This exceptionally fine drawing in red ink contains an all-but-faded signature, "Riza", below the figure’s feet. The delicate style of the draughtsmanship, with lines of varying thickness and the hooked splutter of the pen to denote the fringe of the figure’s waist sash conform to Riza’s style of draughtsmanship from about 1590 to 1600. The figure’s Central Asian facial features suggest that he was one of the pilgrims that Riza observed when he accompanied Shah ‘Abbas I on his pilgrimage to Mashhad in 1598.
