Scenes from Khusrau o Shírín in the Khamsa of Niẓámí; single-page drawing on a detached album folio. Different scenes from the romance Khusrau o Shírín in the Khamsa of Niẓámí. The scene of Farhad carrying Shírín and her horse on his shoulders is depicted on the left-hand side. On the right-hand side, instead, Shírín is depicted flanked by attendants. On the upper right corner, a man on horseback is looking at Shírín, probably hinting at the scene of Khusrau spying the Armenian princess while bathing. Inscribed.
Ink and watercolour on paper.
