Featuring some of the finest paintings and luxury objects from Mughal India, this exhibition of 31 works of art traces the origins and development of a distinct Mughal pictorial style in the 16th and 17th centuries and its artistic impact on both Rajput and Persian paintings. Examples include Prince Resting During a Hunt (painting from Akbar's reign), a Rajput equestrian painting by Sahiba Ram, and several folios from a manuscript known as the Late Shah Jahan Album.
