Walters Ms. W.903, Single leaf of the Virgin and Child
Single leaf of the Virgin and Child
This Mughal tinted drawing of the Virgin and Child dates to the eleventh century AH / seventeenth CE. The Virgin Mary is shown in a diaphanous light pink garment seated beside two baskets. She looks toward the infant Jesus, who clasps her hand. The image documents Mughal interest in themes circulated by the Jesuits and European traders. The Virgin and Child were popular subject matter under the Mughal emperors, especially Akbar and Jahangir.
