Painting: Karim Khan Zand and His Close Circle

Painting: Karim Khan Zand and His Close Circle

Oil on canvas painting dating to the late 18th century of Iranian origins. Attributed to Muhammad Sadiq.

Karim Khan Zand (1751 to 1779) was the founder of the Zand Dynasty and the Shah of Persia (Iran).

On Boxing Day (no, not when people punch each other after Christmas, but a British tradition of 26 December as a holiday), I met up with John FitzGerald (Ipernity) or John FitzGerald (flickr} to visit the Aga Khan Museum, which is dedicated to Islamic artifacts. Special thanks to John for alerting me about the Emperors & Jewels special exhibition.
