About The Artist:

The Indian literature tradition dates back to at least 5000 years ago, when it was transmitted orally through poetry and song. In 800 AD illuminated manuscripts came to the Indian subcontinent. Illuminated manuscripts are texts framed by colorful decoration and illustrations and first appeared in Europe around 400 AD during the rise of Christianity. In India, the Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain religious followers all embraced illuminated manuscripts to pass down their own traditions. Illuminated manuscripts were at the height of their popularity during the Mughal period in the 16th century when the emperor Akbar the Great founded a school for miniature painting in Fatehpur Sikri, the capital city. The prolific style has been preserved and thousands of manuscripts still survive today.
