Pavel Petrovich Ivanov, who later changed his name to Paul Mak, was a Russian artist born in 1891. He was known for his fantastical style and Middle-Eastern themes. He received his art education at K. Iuon's studio in Moscow and worked as an illustrator for journals in Moscow and St. Petersburg, including Satirikon. He later joined the Kiev Military Academy during World War I and was promoted to the rank of Captain, serving in the 89th Belomorskii Infantry Regiment. The Bolsheviks imprisoned him in Butyrskii after the October Revolution but was later rehabilitated and became an artist for the Theatre of Revolutionary Satire in Moscow.

In 1922, Mak left Russia and settled in Persia (modern-day Iran) after traveling through Turkestan and Afghanistan. Initially, he worked as a racehorse trainer before becoming the official court artist for Reza Shah. During this time, Mak studied Persian miniature art and drew inspiration from the exoticism of Eastern tales and history. He depicted figures such as Salome, Tamerlane, and Chingis Khan in his stylized line. He also drew heavily from 'The Thousand and One Nights', a collection of tales from India, Persia, and Arabia, which proved to be a fertile source for his miniatures.

This painting is a later painting by the artist, with a more modern Russian futurist and cubist style, while retaining the original movement and palette of his earlier works. The painting is in excellent condition and remains in the original vintage frame. The vintage frame's original cream-colored linen liner has been restored to a charcoal-black

color. The painting measures 12" X 16", plus the frame.
