The Majesty of Mughal Decoration : The Art and Architecture of Islamic India Hardback
Common decorative motifs juxtaposed with architectural details and exquisitely crafted objects define the aesthetic traditions of Mughal art in this lavishly illustrated book.
Beautifully photographed close-up details of wall reliefs, inlaid metal hookah bowls, carpets, jade sword hilts, gilded borders of miniature paintings and embroidered shawls emphasize the unity of the themes in Mughal art, while George Michell's lucid text places the works in their historical and architectural context.
This sumptuous volume will be essential reading for all lovers of Indian art as well as those with a professional interest in the subject.
