-Mughal painting is a particular style of South Asian painting, generally confined to miniatures either as book illustrations or as single works to be kept in albums, which emerged from Persian miniature painting (largely of Chinese origin), with Indian Hindu, Jain, and Buddhist influences, and developed largely in the court of the Mughal Empire (16th - 19th centuries), and later spread to other Indian courts, both Muslim and Hindu, and later Sikh.

-This drawing of the blue-gray horse, its rich saddle, and the bare, rocky landscape is in a Persian vein, while the groom, with his small, tight turban, is rendered in the contemporary Mughal style. Ink, opaque watercolor, and gold on paper.
