About The Craft
A flamboyant and impressive fusion of the Indian style and the Safavid style of the Persian school gave birth to the Mughal School of Miniature Painting. Gracious strokes artfully done with a single haired brush, marks the detailing in the painting. The intricacy is so fine that the painting cannot be viewed alone with naked eyes and needs magnifying glass to view the details.
