Mughal and Other Indian Paintings
- from the Chester Beatty Library

By Linda York Leach; (2 volumes) price €40.00


It would be difficult to discuss the history of Mughal miniatures without reference to the Chester Beatty Library, Dublin.  These much needed volumes provide a detailed description of all the Indian manuscripts, albums and individual paintings from the Mughal period onwards.  The volumes fill a significant gap in the reference material on the subject and provide an illustrated record of some of the world’s finest surviving examples.


This exceptional Dublin collection complements that of other major museums, and specific comparisons have been made in catalogue entries.  Since the work presents a complete description of all Indian paintings in the Library, it supersedes any earlier catalogues
