Illustration from a Yusuf and Zulhaykha (or Zuleika) manuscript folio: the Prophet Yakub looks upon his son (the Prophet) Yusuf, the divinely ordained child turning to Zulaykha, a maidservant attending. Deccan, circa mid-18th century. Gouache and gold on glazed paper. 12.2 x 12.3cm

The painting looks to have been cut from a manuscript page with its borders partly re-applied, perhaps due to damage, possibly extensive worming as there are holes in the picture as can be seen.

I would like to express my thanks to Dr Moya Carey for identifying the subject
