Captured in Miniature: Mughal Lives Through Mughal Art

Suhag Shirodkar (Author)

"With their passion for nature and art, the Mughal emperors laid out verdant gardens, built splendid monuments - and commissioned beautiful books.

Books were precious to the Mughal kings. Expensive and laborious to produce, they were symbols of royal wealth, power and intelligence. At the height of Mughal power, the imperial studios hummed with the activity of hundreds of papermakers, calligraphers, painters and bookbinders, all producing books for the royal libraries. Many manuscripts were illustrated with exquisite miniature paintings, in which the Mughals took a special delight.

Today these books and paintings, treasured by museums around the world, offer us unique perspectives into Mughal lives.

Captured in Miniature unveils the secrets of miniature painting, allowing children (and adults) to experience thejoy of their creation and interpretation."
