Review: "This new book analyzes the influences that constitute Mughal decoration - the Central Asian inheritance, the artistic practices of Persia and the rich indigenous traditions - and also examines the various materials and techniques through which the Mughals gave expression to their artistic impulses, drawing on the finest pieces of Mughal art in public and private collections in India, Europe and the United States. All the dominant themes of Mughal art are identified and illustrated. These themes are all illustrated in brilliant photographs, including a series of dazzling gatefolds."--Jacket.
