Description: Los Angeles: Getty Publications, 2018. 25cm., hardcover, 160pp. illus.

Summary: By pairing Rembrandt's twenty-two extant drawings of Shah Jahan, Jahangir, Dara Shikoh, and other Mughal courtiers with Mughal paintings of similar compositions, the book critiques the prevailing notion that Rembrandt "brought life" to the static Mughal art. Written by scholars of both Dutch and Indian art, the essays in this volume instead demonstrate how Rembrandt's contact with Mughal painting inspired him to draw in an entirely new, refined style on Asian paper-an approach that was shaped by the Dutch trade in Asia and prompted by the curiosity of a foreign culture. Seen in this light, Rembrandt's engagement with India enriches our understanding of collecting in seventeenth-century Amsterdam, the Dutch global economy, and Rembrandt's artistic self-fashioning. A close examination of the Mughal imperial workshop provides new insights into how Indian paintings came to Europe as well as how Dutch prints were incorporated into Mughal compositions.

Contents: Rembrandt and the Mughal Line: Artistic Inspiration in the Global City of Amsterdam ; Mughal Masterworks in Rembrandt's Hand ; "A book of Indian drawings, by Rembrandt, 25 in number" ; The Global Aspirations of the Mughal Album.
