The diverse and rich artistic forms of the Mughal Empire have been of international inspiration. While relations between the Mughal world and other European powers have been studied many times, this is the first book to explore the mutual influence on art, taste and style between the Portuguese and Mughal empires. Goa and the Great Mughal focuses on the period from the 1570’s, the moment of the first direct contact between the Portuguese and the Mughal Empire, to the first half of the 18th century, when the last direct diplomatic relations took place. This association lasting over two hundred years was expressed in various fields: in trade, politics, diplomacy, religion, art and culture. The ten essays written for this book by an international team of experts highlight different facets of this relationship and are illustrated by a wealth of spectacular Mughal miniatures, European paintings and other contemporary objects.
