Prince Aurangzeb Deccan Plateau, 1653 - 1655



Prince Aurangzeb Deccan Plateau, 1653 - 1655 Aurangzeb, the third son of the emperor Shah Jahan, appears in court dress behind a draped balcony, as though appearing ceremonially at a palace Jharoka window. This portrait was probably painted by a Mughal-trained artist working in the Deccan, where Aurangzeb served as viceroy (1636-1644) and later as governor (1653-1657). In 1658 Aurangzeb would depose his father and succeed him as the emperor Alamgir. University of Oxford - Ashmolean Museum

Very good information.


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.
