Portrait of a Portuguese Mughal

This painting is unlikely to be a contemporary portrait of a 17th-century European visitor to the Mughal court, it is likely that the Mughal artist used a painting as his model for this work. The details of his dress, such as his pinked boots and the open-fronted ruff, are seen in European portraits of the 1580s, while the hilt of his rapier probably dates from as early as the 1560s.
