This beautifully written and illustrated book is the fourth publication of the Jagdish and Kamla Mittal Museum of Indian Art, whose collection of paintings, drawings and other types of Indian art is of such exceptional quality that it has long commanded the attention of art scholars and connoisseurs. In keeping with the Museum's trustees' mandate to publish catalogues of all categories of its objects, this publication presents the Museum's small•but important holdings of Mughal paintings, drawings, and Islamic calligraphy. Several works are by the greatest masters in each of these art forms. Among Mughal paintings, for example, are outstanding works by 17'-century painters Bishandas, Bichitr, and Payag. The drawings are unusually varied in subject and inspiration, and range from religious figures based upon European prints to unconventional studies of plants, animals, and women made from direct observation. The selection of Islamic calligraphy includes exquisite specimens by the foremost calligraphers of 16'h-century Safavid Iran and the Deccani courts of Bijapur and Golkonda. Detailed entries provide much new information and insight about these works and their creators.
