17th Century Folio of Indian Persian Mughal School Miniature Painting.

About the Item

17th Century Folio of Indian Persian Mughal School Miniature Painting. Exceptional and lavishly illustrated Indo Persian Mughal miniature. Bathing females try to cover themselves before the arrival of a prince in a carriage. This is a snapshot of Indian royal court life. In the 16th and 17th century semi-nude women in art came to replace the heroes of Persian epics. These early Mughal portraits show the pose of the heads in a strict profile but the rest of the body is half turned toward the viewers. At this time, modeling and perspective in a painting had not yet been developed. The highest peak in the tradition of miniature painting with sophisticated aesthetics, brilliance of colors and delicacy of execution occurred in the Mughal period. This luxurious illustration is painted in gouache heightened with gold on burnished and polished buff paper. The black border is flecked with gold leaf. This 17th century illuminated folio is from a dispersed royal Mughal album. Provenance private Vero Beach collection. Condition is very good. Wear commensurate with approximately 350 years of age. Artwork is protected with transfer paper. Measurements: W 9 ½” x H 12 ½”
