Portrait of the Emperor Jahangir

This painting depicts the Mughal ruler Jahangir (reigned AD 1605-1627), standing in three-quarter profile, a pose that was common in official Mughal portraiture. It is attributable to the 19th century. During that time, portraits of earlier Mughal rulers were copied and disseminated. This work is executed in opaque watercolor and gold.
