Book Description Thames & Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2007. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. From monumental architecture, sumptuous textiles and the finest miniature paintings down to exquisitely crafted objects of jade - all boasting the distinctive Mughal style, themes are illustrated by brilliant photographs whose effect is heightened by a succession of dazzling foldout spreads. Analysing the influences that constitute this style, the book also examines materials and techniques, drawing on the finest pieces of Mughal art in public and private collections in India, Europe and the United States. These works have retained their unparalleled beauty and sophistication over three hundred years. The book identifies and illustrates the all-pervading presence of geometry; the ingenious use of the arabesque to achieve patterns of dizzying complexity; the austere but sublime effect of calligraphy on buildings and in manuscripts; the flowers in stone, cloth and metal ornamentation; and the frequent appearance of animals and birds to signify the omnipresence of nature.
