India's Mughal emperors, who reigned over a vast and
wealthy empire that extended from Kabul over most of
 the South Asian subcontinent between the sixteenth
 and the nineteenth century, were passionate about
 lavish manuscripts and paintings. Between 1556 and
 1650, the greatest Mughal patrons—the emperors
Akbar, Jahangir and Shah Jahan—formed grand
workshops that brought together and nurtured
India's leading painters, calligraphers and illuminators.
