About the book:

The contributors in this celebratory volume are mid-career and younger scholars with a diversity of perspectives and trainings. In short and focused essays they probe the cultural preoccupations of 16th-to early 20th-century Rajput, Mughal and Deccan India. Themes include the relationship between text and image; portraiture and the interface between painting and photography; iconography copying and radical changes of scale; the politics of pleasure; and the talismanic power of images. Altogether, the book provides delightful insights into the magic world of Indian painting.
