Description On this folio from Walters manuscript W.631, a princely figure is shown in female and male company. All male figures with the exception of one in a blue cloak wear the early Safavid headgear defined by a high red baton. The participants are drinking wine. The standing figure held steady by another is clearly inebriated. It is possible that the seated figure in blue represents the poet Hafiz.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
