Emory Univ.: Mughal Paintings of Indian Heroines

Emory University, Department of Middle Eastern and South Asian Studies (MESAS) presents:
Guest Lecture for the South Asia Seminar Series
by Molly Emma Aitken, Associate Professor of Art History, City College of New York
"Love beyond Reach: Mughal Paintings of Indian Heroines"
Mughal India's painters drew a repertoire of impossibly beautiful women out of Persianate and Indic painting traditions. In rapport with the heroines of poetry and music, these painted ideals embodied Mughal preoccupations with beauty, the pain of longing and the power of the arts to move and transform. This lecture explores Mughal culture's multiple and deep investments in female beauty.
