Women at the Mughal Court | Perception & Reality

Online Catalogue
9 - 23 May 2020

What assumptions or questions do you have about the women depicted in the  following nine paintings? What was life like in the zenana or women’s quarters? How much freedom did they have? With our new online catalogue we are drawing attention to this under-explored area. We look at the fascinating lives and achievements of these women, and how they have been represented, or misrepresented.
