One of the minor miracles of art history is the extraordinary flowering of Indian painting that began in the mid-sixteenth century under the early Mughal emperors of Indian, notably Akbar the Great. Only in recent decades has the consummate artistry of early Mughal painting come to be widely appreciated in the West. Scholars have noted the innovations--departures from both Islamic and native Indian tradition--of the new, highly distinctive school of painting, among them natural history studies, a concern for portraiture, and the documentation of contemporary court events. Milo Beach traces, with an abundance of captivating illustrations, the evolution of the Mughal style. While acknowledging the influence of Akbar's interests and changing tastes (related in turn to historical and biographical circumstances), he shows that many of the new tendencies were evident during the short reign of Akbar's father, the Emperor Humayun, whose role as patron of the arts is thereby reassessed. Beach also stresses the traditionalism of the individual painters, who only gradually changed their concepts and compositions in response to foreign influences and to imperial taste. Mughal art, he affirms, can no longer be regarded as simply a reflection of its imperial patrons. The book takes account of recently discovered material and reproduces for the first time important paintings from unpublished manuscripts and albums. It will appeal to the general reader as well as the scholar.

Illustrations: Numerous B/w & Colour Illustrations Description: The present work is based on an extensive and critical study of the original Mughal paintings supported by contemporary historical literature and provides fresh perspective for the interpretation and analysis of the painter's art under the Mughals. After a brief discussion on painting in Islam the author goes on to expound the nature and role of pre-Mughal indigenous traditions in the making of Mughal style. Thereafter, the study turns towards the origin and development of Mughal painting from Humayun to Aurangzeb. Finally, the various influences--Persian, Chinese and European--have been examined. The author concludes that Mughal painting reflecte a non-mechanical fusion of the different cultures of Asia and Europe. It had never been a colonial expression of Persian painting. Despite the presence of a number of elements borrowed from foreign sources, it remained truly Indian from the very beginning. This richly illustrated volume carries finest treasures of Mughal court paintings.

The Mughal school of painting (mid-sixteenth to seventeenth centuries) produced a body of work of great distinction. This is the first comprehensive book of reference on the work of the nearly 300 Mughal painters whose names are known to us.The painters who worked in the court ateliers of Humayun, Akber, Jahangir and Shah Jahan, often produced work in collaboration. Unlike artists of the European Renaissance tradition, they did not as a matter of course sign their names on their work. Hence the inscriptions that exist on paintings ofthe period require careful scrutiny to determine whether they are genuine signatures or merely contemporary ascriptions. The key to this lies in the form of the inscription: only if the name is accompanied by a ritual phrase of self-abasement such as "thin humble slave" or "dust at the foot of theemperor", can it be taken to be a signature. This convention has not been sufficiently recognized, and in several cases, attibutions have been erroneously made to artists on the basis of their name alone appearing on the painting. Hence, the correct reading and interpretation of the inscriptionsis of central importance to our knowledge of the work of the painters of this school.This catalogue provides, in addition to the standard categories of information on each painting, a scholarly and informed assessment of all the inscriptions on the paintings, several of which are published here for the first time. All inscriptions are given in transliterated form wherever possible;in those cases where the author has not had access to the painting, the published version is provided even if only in translation. All paintings that have been signed by the artist, or are ascribed to him in contemporary inscriptions, are listed under the painter's name in chronological order.Unsigned paintings, or those without a contemporary endorsement, have not been included, unless respectable scholarly opinion has assigned the work to an individual. However, all such attributions are accompanied by a query against the entry. Many ascriptions, till now accepted as being genuine,have proved on closer scrutiny to be either forged or later than the date of the painting.Information about individual artists has been gleaned from original texts (principally Persian historical sources) and is placed together to reconstruct biographical sketches which introduce each entry; this is supplemented by the evidence of the artist's own work.Part I consists of an Introduction which acts out the scope of the catalogue, and provides a historical and artistic context for the work of these painters. Part II contains the catalogue, and is followed by a plate section (Part III) of over fifty miniatures that illustrate the development of theMughal school. The Bibliography, glossary and two indexes further enhance the value of this indispensable reference work.

The Mughals - descendants of Timur and Genghiz Khan with strong cultural ties to the Persian world - seized political power in north India in 1526 and became the most important artistically active Muslim dynasty on the subcontinent. In this richly illustrated book, Dr Milo Beach shows how, between 1555 and 1630 in particular, Mughal patronage of the arts was incessant and radically innovative for the Indian context.
