The Island of Jeanne Moreau
Abul Hassan, Jahangir’s Dream, c. 1620
In this amusing painting, the Mughal Emperor Jahangir (once again with a simply enormous halo) embraces a submissive and diminutive Shah Abbas, the Safavid ruler of the Persian empire. Their place on top of the world on the backs of a lion and a lamb is intended to suggest the peace between the two rulers, though it’s clear who possesses the position of power.
