Nature Observed and Imagined: The Mughal and Deccani Traditions

Prahlad Bubbar is delighted to present a group of exceptional Mughal and Deccani paintings, which rarely appear on the market.

Highlights include an outstanding painting of a Vulture ascribed to Mansur, Nadir al Asr, a display of great naturalism and refinement by the Mughal master artist, with exuberant Jahangir period illuminated borders; an elegant and vibrant early Bijapur painting of Sultan Ibrahim ‘Adil Shah with his lover, previously exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum in the landmark show ‘Sultans of Deccan India’; a jewel-like Jaipur painting of Shiva as The Lord of Desire with the mighty Devi Lalitha, She who is beautiful in the three worlds, made with gold impasto and embellished with betel wings, mica and natural pearls; and a superb group of early photographs by Linnaeus Tripe and Dr John Murray, two of the eminent pioneer photographers in India.
