The Freer Ramayana and Other Illustrated Manuscripts of 'Abd al-Rahim

‘Abd al-Rahim, the commander-in-chief of the mughal armies and a great bibliophile, was the most important patron of Mughal painting outside the imperial family. John Seyller presents the seven illustrated manuscripts commissioned by this eminent noble and places them in the context of imperial Mughal painting and patronage at the beginning of the 17th century. This book provides a nuanced picture of the interaction among artists in a series of collaborative projects and an original and thoughtful analysis of patronage in Mughal India.
