From Library Journal

The majesty and splendor of the Mughal Empire comes to life under the guidance of Stronge, curator of Indian and Southeast Asian Art at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Stronge here focuses on the development of the book arts during the reigns of Akbar, Jahangir, and Shah Jahan. At the time, in the area known as Hindustan, Persian, Hindu, and Muslim cultures intertwined to shape and influence art. The renowned collection at the Victoria & Albert Museum, never before the subject of a book, lends itself to a thorough discussion of this Golden Age, spanning about 100 years of Mughal art. Not enough has been published that truly illuminates the art of India, and Stronge does a very good job of fleshing out the actual artists of the time, providing names, biographies, and definitive stylistic characteristics. The book contains notes, the sequence by date of the paintings presented, a select bibliography, and a full index. Complementary readings by Milo Cleveland Beach or Asok Kumar Das would serve the reader well.
