The courtly patrons and artists of Bijapur, an Islamic kingdom that flourished in the Deccan region of India in the 16th and 17th centuries, produced lush paintings and elaborately carved architecture, evidence of a highly cosmopolitan Indo-Islamic culture. This stunningly illustrated study traces the development of Bijapuri art and courtly identity through detailed examination of selected paintings, architecture and literature.
