Mughal art and architecture

Humayun

The school of Mughal painting began in 1549 when Humayun(1530–56) invited two Persian painters to his court, then at Kabul. They came to direct the illustration of the Amir Hamza, a fantastic narrative of which some 1,400 large paintings were executed on cloth.
