The Mughals Life, Art and Culture

J.P. Losty (Author) Malini Roy (Author) John Falconer (Author) Ursula Sims-Williams (Author) Muhammad Isa Waley (Author)

A facsimile edition of the much-acclaimed original Mughal India: Art , Culture and Empire, curated by the British Library, London, The Mughals: Life, Art and Culture, brought to Delhi by Roli Books in collaboration with the British Library and IGNCA, showcases an extensive collection of illustrated manuscripts and paintings that depict the splendour and vibrant colour of Mughal life. From scenes of country life, including lively hunting parties and formal portraits of emperors, to illustrating of works of literature which manage to convey complex storylines in a single image, many of these works have never been published. Some of the rare exhibits on display include : Shah Jahan’s recipe book, ‘Notebook of Fragrance’, an 18th century manuscript ‘Book of Affairs of Love’ by Rai Anand Ram Mukhlis, ’Reminiscences of Imperial Delhi’ by Sir Thomas Metcalfe, illustrated by Mazhar Ali Khan, a route map from Delhi to Qandahar, an earliest India Atlas, a map of Delhi, a riverfront map of Agra, a bird’s-eye view of Red Fort Delhi, and some of the extraordinary portraits as well as Mughal miniatures.
