رابرت شرلی با لباس دوره صفوی. نقاشی از آنتونی ون (فان) دایک - کشیده شده در ۱۶۲۲ میلادی
This painting shows Sir Robert Shirley in Persian costume. He was the envoy of the Safavids to Europe. This painting is was created by Anthony van Dyck in Rome around 1622, and is kept in a private collection in England according to the information from Wikipedia. What I like the most about this painting, is the fact that one can see the design of royal Safavid costume in a realistic way.

Anthony van Dyck (22 March 1599 – 9 December 1641) was a Flemish Baroque artist who became the leading court painter in England. He is most famous for his portraits of Charles I of England and his family and court, painted with a relaxed elegance that was to be the dominant influence on English portrait-painting for the next 150 years. He also painted biblical and mythological subjects, displayed outstanding facility as a draftsman, and was an important innovator in watercolor and etching.
