1590-1600. Young Woman with a Fan. Iran, Isfahan. Leaf: 23.5 × 15.2 cm. Very similar to painting by Riza-i Abbasi (1565-1635) in the Freer Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.  This artist decidedly set the tone in 17th-century Iran. He had many pupils and imitators, and if this charming but unsigned painting was not made by the artist himself, then it was at least painted by one who knew and mastered his style to perfection.
