Miniatures are among the eye-catching sights at an exhibition on Mughal India
At the entrance to Mughal India: Art, Culture And Empire at The British Library in London, an animated video showed the spread of the Mughal empire from beginning to end: expanding from the Fergana Valley in modern-day Uzbekistan to the plains of northern India under Babur, the first Mughal emperor; expanding to the Deccan under Aurangzeb; slowly shrinking to nothing more than effectively the area of Delhi’s Red Fort under the last Mughal, Bahadur Shah Zafar. The exhibit that followed narrated, through objects and paintings, the story of this great dynasty that ruled much of the Indian subcontinent from 1526-1858 and traced the many influences that influenced the empire and left an indelible mark on the culture and fabric of modern South Asia.
