Mīr Sayyid ‘Alī

Mīr Sayyid ‘Alī
flourished 16th century

Persian miniature painter.

Born in Tabrīz, he went to India about 1545. He and fellow countryman ‘Abd al-Samad instructed the artists of the imperial atelier, most of them Indians, and thereby helped to found the school of Mughal painting. He supervised part of the production of the illustrations to the Mughal manuscript Dāstān-e Amīr Ḥamzeh ("Stories of Amir Hamzeh"). The few paintings by him that have survived reveal that he was a highly gifted painter, wielding a delicate brushstroke and great powers of observation.
