The Landscapes of India. Miniature Painting from the Mughal Era

03.04.2014 to 08.02.2015
Museum für Asiatische Kunst

The miniatures on display in this exhibition reveal the scope of the landscape tradition in Indian painting. At the same time, they represent a cross-section of northern and central Indian schools of painting from the 16th through the 19th centuries.

While abstract imagery - particularly with regards to nature and landscape - was visible in Rajput schools of painting into the 19th century, the European influence on Mughal painting reveals itself in an unmistakable naturalism. The Mughal style did affect the Rajput schools however, as can be seen not only in the treatment of depth and horizon, but also in the partially naturalistic representation of flora and fauna in Kangra paintings.
