Mughal painting is a particular style of South Asianpainting, generally confined to miniatures either asbook illustrations or as single works to be kept inalbums, which emerged from Persian miniaturepainting (itself largely of Chinese origin), with IndianHindu, Jain and Buddhist influences, and developedlargely in the court of the Mughal empire of the 16thto 18th centuries.What is Mughal Painting
Before the rise of the Mughal Empire in India, the Delhi Sultanate ruledover most parts of the Indian subcontinent. Miniature painting wasalready evolving in various regions from around 10th century and itcontinued to flourish in various regional courts during the DelhiSultanate.When Humayun, the second Mughal emperor, returned from his exile,he brought along with him two eminent Persian artists – Mir Sayyid Aliand Abd al-Samad. Based on Humayun’s instructions, these Persianartists created many famous paintings, including the ‘Khamsa ofNizami.’These paintings deviated from the traditional style of Persian art andhence a new style of art form called ‘Mughal Painting’ was born. Mughalpaintings were further developed by subsequent Mughal emperors.History & Origin
