Borovikovsky, V. L. "Murtaza-Kuli-Khan". 1796

Notes: Portrait of Murtaza-Kuli-Khan (?-1800), brother of Aga-Magometh, the Shah of Persia This portrait of the Shah's brother, Murtaza-Kuli-Khan, posed in exotic regalia, is a testament to the fact that Borovikovsky's services were in demand by visiting dignitaries.
