Gift of Mrs. A. Dean Perry 1962.279.27.a
This work is attributed to the same unnamed artist who painted folio 45r (1962.279.45.a).
Possibly the earliest surviving manuscript from the reign of the Mughal emperor Akbar, many of the illustrations were painted by Indian artists accustomed to working in a horizontal format derived from the use of palm leaves. They also chose to depict scenes without spatial depth, making use of patterns on blocks of color and angular gestures, all characteristic of indigenous, pre-Mughal painting styles.
