Courtly life, power and culture in the Indian subcontinent under Mughal rule (1526 – 1858) are explored in this fascinating display of drawings and prints, coins and manuscripts.

Objects lent by the University’s Cadbury Research Library (CRL) and the private Hussain-Islimi Arts Collection – alongside rarely-exhibited works from the Barber’s own collection – reveal how patrons and artists developed a distinctive Mughal style that reflected their power and ideals of beauty.

The display is curated by Neelam Hussain, Curator of the Mingana Collection of Middle Eastern Manuscripts at the CRL.

Admission is free and the exhibition is located in the Green Gallery Print Bay.
