Biblical themes in Mughal painting (Crossing Cultural Frontiers)

Verma, S.P.

₹ 1950.00

Renaissance painting on Biblical themes, full of exoticisms and great naturalism, inspired Mughal patrons, Akbar (r. 1556-1605), Jahangir (r. 1605-1627), Shah Jahan (r. 1628-1657) and their court painters active at Fatehpuri Sikri, Agra, Lahore and Delhi. The present study analyzes the nature and nurture of biblical art in India and its far-reaching impact on the art of India -an aspect of study too frequently ignored by the Indian art historians.
