Pictures of Comfort and Design: Carpets in Indian Miniature Painting

Pergamonmuseum | Berlin
€6 - €12
The exhibition in the Islamic Book Arts gallery at the Museum für Islamische Kunst (in the Pergamanonmuseum) presents around 22 Indo-Islamic paintings from the Mughal era that demonstrate the use of carpets in the courtly context. The Mughal emperors were Islamic rulers, who reigned over vast areas of India from 1526 to 1858. Babur, founder of the dynasty, came from Persian-influenced Central Asia. He brought numerous customs to his new homeland, including the use of carpets as preferred furnishings.

The exhibition is over since the 26/01/2018
