The art of paintings was first introduced in India by Mughal Emperor in 16th century. One Mughal Emperor Akbar (1542-1605) saw the amalgamation in Iranian style with the Indian style.
Paintings from this period are lyrical in style and often depict human figures, birds, trees, flowers, animals and portraits with great fidelity to the subject without losing any of the artistic flow of the earlier age.
These paintings are any connoisseur‚s delight. The son of the great Akbar, Jahangir was the second in line of four great Mughal emperors. Although a despot, he is also remembered for his devotion to art and literature. Shah Jahan, the son of Jahangir continued the tradition of royal patronage of the arts and built the Taj Mahal.
