Early Mughal Painting available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
Beach traces, with an abundance of illustrations, the evolution of the Mughal style. While acknowledging the influence of Akbar the Great’s interests and changing tastes, 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.
