DESCRIPTION

Landscape with a lotus pool, from a Tuti-nama (Tales of a Parrot), Eighth Night c. 1560 Part of a set. See all set records Gujarati (Indian, active 1550s-1590s) India, Mughal, Reign of Akbar, 16th century Gum tempera, ink, and gold on paper Overall: 20 x 13.6 cm (7 7/8 x 5 3/8 in.) Gift of Mrs. A. Dean Perry 1962.279.59.a DID YOU KNOW? The inscription on this page attributes it to the same artist as the previous painting (1962.279.58.a). DESCRIPTION Two white birds wade at the edges of a dark colored lotus pool surrounded by lush green trees. Though the artist is from the western Indian state of Gujarat, many elements reveal a familiarity with Persian painting conventions, such as the arid pink ground with tufts of grass, the overlapping leaves of the trees, and the grassy sward. The water was once silver, which has now tarnished black, and white lines render swirling eddies.

Very good information.

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.
