Persian Princess

By Alberto Vargas
About the image

Originally painted in 1930 for the cover of Tatler and American Sketch, the subject, Jasmine, is the Sultan's youngest daughter. She lies at the edge of a pool in the palace garden, dreamily gazing at her reflection in the still waters. Suddenly, a stranger approaches — a handsome young man in princely attire. She shows no alarm as she lifts her head to meet the stranger's eyes. Her face is like that of an angel — a girl to fall in love with at first sight. More than the portrait of a beautiful girl, this image tells a tale from a far-away land: the story of a young princess in ancient Persia.
