Mughal Painting: Power and Piety at Foster Galleries at the Seattle Asian Art Museum presents works of art created in India under the Mughals, from 1526 to 1857. The artwork on display is predominantly miniature painting, which fuses Indian and Persian styles. The court’s finest artists worked on several hundred such pieces on paper, during the course of the empire. However, only a few have been preserved to the present day. The paintings predominantly depict the victories, battles and daily lives of the royalty.
