Riza-yi 'Abbasi (ca. 15651635), The Lovers, 1630

This evocative digital print was reproduced from an original work by artist Riza-yi 'Abbasi, which he created with opaque watercolor, ink, and gold on paper. 'Abbasi revolutionized Persian painting and drawing with his inventive use of calligraphic line and unusual palette.

He painted The Lovers toward the end of a long, successful career at the Safavid court. The subject of a couple entwined reflects a newly relaxed attitude to sensuality introduced in the reign of Shah Safi. Here the figures are inextricably bound together, merged volumes confined within one outline.
