Made for Mughal Emperors : Royal Treasures from Hindustan Hardback
Mughal Hindustan is renowned for its opulence. From the architecture of the Taj Mahal to the intricacies of miniature paintings, the artwork of the Mughal court still captivates scholars and general readers alike.
Under emperors Akbar, Jahangir and Shah Jahan the court produced some of the greatest arts and crafts of the era.
Artists and craftsmen came from Europe, Persia and all over the Indian subcontinent to the Mughal palaces to offer their skills and expertise.
Susan Stronge's lavishly illustrated new book tells the stories behind the artwork, revealing the lives and livelihoods of those who redefined the world of Islamic art.
She traces the route from the craftsmen in the workshops to the royalty and nobles who commissioned the exquisite pieces.
Made for Mughal Emperors, which contains many images never before published in the West, provides a sweeping history of Mughal artwork and a fascinating insight into the workings of the Mughal Court.
