Muhammad III Zaman

Muhammad III Zaman

Muhammad Zaman III was a painter, active from 1758-95, who worked both for Lutf 'Ali Khan Zand and subsequently for the Qajars.  He used both Aqa Zaman and Ya Sahib al-Zaman as his signatures.  The majority of his surviving output is in lacquer but he also worked in oils, and was a very sensitive portraitist (Layla S. Diba with Maryam Ekhtiar, Royal Persian Paintings, New York, 1998, no.44, pp.190-1).  This painting demonstrates this skill – and the artist’s ability to capture the intensity and mood of the sitters.  The distinct facial features and languid poses of the figures as well as the attention paid to the floral patterns of the textiles and the details of the costume are all hallmarks of Zaman’s style.
