The Mughal Museum: Jahangir’s Hazelnut and Shah Jahan’s Pietra Dura Orpheus

Ebba Koch

4 juillet 2017 | 17h-19h

Salle 751, CEIAS, 54 boulevard Raspail, 75006 Paris


Dans le cadre de l'atelier thématique Histoires de soi, histoires des autres : questions de traduction et d’historiographie


The lecture discusses how, at the turn of the seventeenth century, the Mughal emperors entered the ‘international’ collecting scène. The universal interests and strategies of  Jahangir (rul. 1605-1627)  were  refined by his son and successor Shah Jahan (rul. 1628-58) who incorporated Florentine pietra dura tablets into the throne arrangement of his palace in Delhi (1648) -  a highly visible and ideologically charged exhibition of European art at the Mughal court.
