This large drawing was copied in Rubens' studio during his own time and circulated as a reproductive print in the eighteenth century. Despite the drawing's renown, however, the reasons why it was made and whether it actually depicts a specific Asian person remain a mystery. The intriguing story that develops involves a shipwreck, an unusual hat, the earliest trade between Europe and Asia, the trafficking of Asian slaves, and the role of Jesuit missionaries in Asia."--Page 4 of cover."@en
