    Another beautiful book from the Metropolitan Museum of Art The Deccan period in India roughly 1500 1700 was a time of change and discovery The increased influence and domination of Muslim rulers from the Middle East brought many of the techniues and concerns of Persian culture to India just at the time when Europeans were seeking to expand their presence in Asia It was a time of both immense wealth and opulence and cultural crisis not unlike the multicultural present The Muslim rulers impacted Indian architecture textiles jewelry and above all painting taking the tradition of Persian miniature painting originally developed as book illustrations to new heights with Indian artists The resulting work is well represented in this book as it was in the exhibition the book documents The essays which explore the historical and cultural pressures of the time as well as delving deeply into the specifics of the works raise the current level of scholarship about this complex period Those interested in Indian art will want to own this
