Luxury and opulence characterized the rule of the Mughal dynasty in India. The Mughals were a group from Central Asia who invaded India in the 16th century and would go on to rule much of India for two centuries. These emperors would have a profound impact on Indian culture generally and Indian miniature painting specifically. During this tour, we will explore the major Mughal patrons’ influence on this art form, focusing on style and subject matter.
