Although the study of painting under the Great Mughals is one of the most popular topics of Indian art historical research, scant attention has been given to the continuation of this tradition--the painting and illustrated manuscripts produced at the Delhi court and various regional schools from the reign of Bahadur Shah 1 in 1707 to the end of the reign of Bahadur Shah Zafar in 1858. This volume addresses several important themes of the era: the development of the styles of major artists, such as Chitarman, Dip Chand, and Imam Baksh, and their influence on later Mughal painting; the proliferation of regional styles during these years; and finally offered are new appraisals of the European contribution to Indian art of these 150 years.
