    Shaykh 'Abbasi was active during the reigns of Shah 'Abbas II and Shah Suleyman. His style is often seen as epitomising the mixing of Persian and Indian painting, though there is no evidence that he worked in India. For examples of his work, see A. Soudavar, Art of the Persian Courts, New York 1992, pp. 367-68, nos. 146, 147; and M. Zebrowski, Deccani Painting, London 1983, p. 197).
