Mughal Painting Book Review:

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.

Early Mughal Painting Book Review:

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.

Paintings from Mughal India Book Review:

A unique style of court painting, combining Persian, Indian and European elements, developed in India under the Mughal emperors in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Originally an art of book illustration, it soon gave rise to highly naturalistic portraiture and scenes of court life, among other subjects. These elegant and expressive works reflect the splendour of the Mughal empire, as well as the enthusiasm of the emperors from Akbar (1556-1605) onwards for stories of adventure and romance, for the recording of great imperial assemblies, or the meticulous depiction of the flora and fauna of India. Among the highlights of the book are the illustrations to Akbar's magnificent Baharistan manuscript of 1595, and the court scenes from the reigns of Shah Jahan (1627-58) or the pleasure-loving Muhammad Shah (1719-48). This book reproduces many of the finest Mughal and Deccani paintings preserved in the Bodleian Library's rich and historic collection, largely formed between 1640 and 1900. These pictures range in date from around 1560 to 1800, when British influence was becoming dominant in India. Each image is presented as a full page colour plate with facing text describing its subject and significance, while the introduction situates the works within the general context of the period and its art. A number of textual revisions have been made since the book first appeared in 2008.

Painting for the Mughal Emperor Book Review:

A unique blend of Indian, Persian, and Islamic styles, Mughal painting reached its golden age during the reigns of the emperors Akbar, Jahangir, and Shah Jahan in the 16th and 17th centuries. This gloriously illustrated book is the first to examine the Victoria and Albert Museum's remarkable collection of Mughal paintings, one of the finest in the world. Richly detailed battle scenes, scenes of court life, and lively depictions of the hunt were commissioned by the royal courts, along with a remarkable series of portraits, studies of wildlife, and decorative borders. The authoritative text contains much new research, and the beautifully reproduced color illustrations give this stunning volume wide appeal.

Mughal Painters and Their Work Book Review:

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.

Aesthetic Hybridity in Mughal Painting 1526 1658 Book Review:

The first specialized critical-aesthetic study to be published on the concept of hybridity in early Mughal painting, this book investigates the workings of the diverse creative forces that led to the formation of a unique Mughal pictorial language. Mughal pictoriality distinguishes itself from the Persianate models through the rationalization of the picture’s conceptual structure and other visual modes of expression involving the aesthetic concept of mimesis. If the stylistic and iconographic results of this transformational process have been well identified and evidenced, their hermeneutic interpretation greatly suffers from the neglect of a methodologically updated investigation of the images’ conceptual underpinning. Valerie Gonzalez addresses this lacuna by exploring the operations of cross-fertilization at the level of imagistic conceptualization resulting from the multifaceted encounter between the local legacy of Indo-Persianate book art, the freshly imported Persian models to Mughal India after 1555 and the influx of European art at the Mughal court in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The author's close examination of the visuality, metaphysical order and aesthetic language of Mughal imagery and portraiture sheds new light on this particular aspect of its aesthetic hybridity, which is usually approached monolithically as a historical phenomenon of cross-cultural interaction. That approach fails to consider specific parameters and features inherent to the artistic practice, such as the differences between doxis and praxis, conceptualization and realization, intentionality and what lies beyond it. By studying the distinct phases and principles of hybridization between the variegated pictorial sources at work in the Mughal creative process at the successive levels of the project/intention, the practice/realization and the result/product, the author deciphers the modalities of appropriation and manipulation of the heterogeneous elements.

Painting the Mughal Experience Book Review:

This is a comprehensive yet detailed account of Mughal Painting. Drawing on various primary and secondary sources, the author presents Mughal painting in a thematic rather than ruler-centric manner. He provides a vivid account of the Mughal atelier, as well as the work of individual artists,and examines the various influences in the creation of this magnificent genre of sixteenth-century narrative art. Specific art-forms such as portraiture, the depiction of nature, and the illustration of margins of manuscripts and minatures which are considered significant facets of Mughal paintingare minutely studied. Technical skills, motifs, and the symbolism, which is characteristic of this period are also discussed extensively. Two important chapters discuss the interesting and rather unprecedented phenomenon of inscribing the names of the artist on the works executed by them, and theinfluence of European Renaissance art on Mughal painting, respectively. The author provides fresh information on primary sources in the light of new approaches. Long-held opinions by established art historians on the historicity and other aspects of these minatures are also questioned, and sometimeseven refuted in the course of describing the various aspects of the genre.
