Mughal Painting (An Interplay of Indigenous and Foreign Traditions)
Mughal Painting (An Interplay of Indigenous and Foreign Traditions)
Description
About the Book:

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 reflects 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.

Ashok Kumar Srivastava (b. 1956) is Senior Reader in History in the University of Gorakhpur. He worked as a Commonwealth Fellow (1997) at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. He is presently working on painting as a source of history.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
Rita Wason
