DESCRIPTION

Kublai Khan and His Empress Enthroned, from a Jami al-Twarikh (or Chingiznama) 1596 Kesu Kalan (Keshav Das) Mughal dynasty Reign of Akbar Opaque watercolor, ink and gold on paper H: 38.8 W: 25.3 cm India This painting from the era of the Mughal emperor Akbar (reigned 1556-1605) probably belongs to a manuscript of the history of Genghis Khan, from whom the Mughals claimed descent. Kesu Das or Kesu Kalan was among Akbar's leading artists and was known for his adaptations of European prints, an interest that is evident in the perspectival treatment of the architecture seen in the background. The oval shapes and pronounced modeling of the faces are typical of Kesu Das's portraits. Copyright Smithsonian Institution

MUGHAL IMAGES

The Mughal Images immediately took a much greater interest in realistic portraiture than was typical of Persian miniatures. Animals and plants were the main subject of many miniatures for albums and were more realistically depicted. To upload your images click here.
