In later Mughal period, paintings were no longer produced for the sole edification of the emperor; instead the leading families found it fashionable to keep in their service painters whom they employed in either ornamenting the walls of their houses with pictures, or immortalizing the features of the chief members. Moreover, in the selection of subject matter, there appears a growing desire for the strange and fantastic rather than the beautiful.

There is a warm intimacy between man and animal. Here the dog rushes to greet his master who is relaxing after a hard day at the court. He is resting against a bolster, siting on the ground in a casual posture. He is wearing a white angarakha and green pajamas. The long 'patka' (sash at the waist) and the style of the turban suggest the fashion prevalent during Aurangzeb's reign. He is wearing long strings of pearls. A dagger is tucked in the sash. The turban has a band with a decorative plume. Close to him lie a tray holding a wine casket and tumblers, and a bowl of snacks.

Dogs and puppies conjure up the frolic and play of childhood and going by the expression on the man's face, he is mighty pleased to see his pet. The manner in which the dog licks his master's face and he reciprocates the affection by caressing him shows that they share an emotional dependence on each other.

This miniature exhibits refined drawing and coloring. There is a tendency towards simplification of style; the composition is less complex, space more flattened and the theme alive and exciting.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
