The New Cambridge History of India - Mughal and Rajput Painting

£17.99

Product description

2000 Reprint of 1992 edition, published by Cambridge University Press. Illustrated with 179 black & white examples of the paintings

Mughal and Rajput Painting, published as part 1 of a 4 self-contained set of volumes of the New Cambridge History of India.

The Mughals seized political power in north India in 1526 and became the most important artistically active Muslim dynasty on the subcontinent. In this richly illustrated work, Dr. Milo Beach shows how Mughal patronage of the arts was radically innovative for the Indian context and profoundly altered the character of painting in the Rajput Hindu areas of north India. He reveals the different styles and subjects of Mughal and Rajput painting and the interplay of the two traditions. Beach also explores the tolerance each showed toward outside influence and change, demonstrating a uniquely Indian attitude towards the art.

In very good condition throughout, complete with unclipped dust jacket. Light pencil under-linings on a few pages.
