Princes and Painters in Mughal Delhi, 1707–1857

This turbulent epoch when the Mughal Empire waned and the East India Company boomed witnessed a burst of artistic innovation and experimentation. Delhi’s artists became adept at improvising with a variety of techniques, creating traditional miniatures while continually experimenting with new European styles. Dalrymple shows the masterpieces created and tells their stories.
