W.705, Single leaf of a portrait of the emperor Jahangir
This painting depicts the Mughal ruler Jahangir (r. 1014-1037 AH / 1605-27 CE), standing in three-quarter profile, a pose that was common in official Mughal portraiture. It is attributable to the thirteenth century AH / nineteenth CE. During that time, portraits of earlier Mughal rulers were copied and disseminated. This work is executed in opaque watercolor and gold.
