The work of Ustad (Master) Haydar Ali
According to the illuminated cartouche, Horse and Groom was painted by Haydar Ali, one of the leading early-sixteenth-century painters and nephew of the legendary Persian painter, Bihzad. Haydar Ali may have begun his artistic training with his uncle in Herat before moving west to Tabriz. Characterized by fine draftsmanship, a vibrant palette, and intricate surface designs, this composition embodies the elegance and refinement of early-sixteenth-century Persian paintings.
