Mughal paintings must always rank proudly in the comparative scales of the worlds art in its singularity of style, its originality and its superb drawing.

Portraiture was the forte of Mughal art. Though Shah Jahan's reign saw a spurt of wonderful architecture, painting was not neglected. His albums include portraits of his sons done in different styles. His favourite son Dara Shokuh is shown in the conventional portrait manner, standing in profile against an olive green background. He is dressed in a transparent jama and an exquisitely woven patka. His turban is richly decorated with a Sarpech, a kalza and a plume. The features in profile show a wide forehead, an aquiline nose and a shapely chin which the beard can barely conceal, in fact, the subtle modeling of the features is excellent.

The artist applies the paint lightly, not using too many contrasting colours. The green of the background uplifts the portrait into prominence.

Testimonials
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
