The Mughal School of Painting is characterized with Indo Persian style. Mughal Emperors Akbar and Jahangir were great patrons of paintings and possessed innate sense to distinguish works of art. Akbar considered artists as equivalent to God as according to him they executed pictures, which resembled the exact image of the human beings who were a creation of God. The episode between Jahangir and the English Ambassador Sir Thomas Roe provides an insight to the artistic merit of the Indian painters. Jahangir asked Roe to identify an original European painting placed alongside five copies of it made by the Indian painters. The brilliance and similarity of the paintings completely foxed the English Ambassador. The Miniatures and Illustrated manuscripts mirror the cultural legacy and spirit of the Mughal art. - (MA.208)
