Book Description
One of the world`s finest private collections of Indian "miniature" paintings, a promised bequest to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and is represented by some 90 works of art created in workshops across India over the course of four centuries. The paintings, all reproduced in full colour and accompanied by a detailed scholarly examination, span the period from before the rise of Islamic Mughal rule in Northern India during the 1500s to the heyday of the British Raj in the late 19th century. The "intimate worlds" evoked by these images vividly illustrate Hindu, Muslim and Jain religious stories; offers vision of life at court; and explore the pleasures and pains of love. The essays discuss the history of the collection of Indian art, hierarchies of taste and the relationship between artists and patrons.
