View of the Palace from the Lahore Gate



Fig. 28: VIFT OF THE PALACE FROM THE LAHORE GATE, by Sita Ram, 1815. Either the visit was very hurried or the awe and majesty which Sita Ram felt emanating trom the Qila-i Mubarik was too much for him, since this view is hardly accurate except for the top of the great arcaded chatta in front of him and the gardens on either side of it. Watercolor, 35x 52.1 cm. British Library, London, Add. Or: 4826

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.
