Presenting an illustration from Jami’s masterpiece, Haft Awrang* (seven thrones), attributable to 16th century artist Mirza ‘Ali. (The original is in the Freer Gallery of Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.).
It is titled, “Donkey for Sale”.
The illustration depicts a peasant trying to sell an emaciated animal as one possessing greater qualities. This sad scene is contrasted by the colors of a splendid market place and a proudly galloping young nobleman (supposedly a portrait of Ibrahim Mirza).
The modern artist has executed the painting in minute delicacy with a marked attention to the human subjects, flora, fauna, and outdoor setting .
This is Persian style art at its finest. The superb handmade artwork has been brilliantly achieved with use of meticulous brushwork and fine watercolors. Buy it today to display or add to your Asian art showcase.
*The Haft Awrang is a compilation of seven masnavi poems and constitutes the major poetical work of Jami (d. 1492) composed in the second half of the 15th century.
