The walk focuses on court cultures in early modern India, c. 1500–1800. The lives of kings,
queens, princesses, scribes, courtesans, painters and chamberlains are not merely
represented in paintings but also embodied in the things that they used. We will look at
paintings and material objects like boxes, cups, tiles, rings and household shrines to talk
about the histories of patronage, gift, circulation and consumption. While our main focus
would be on the royal and noble courts of the Mughals, we will also look at the Deccani and
Rajput courts to understand some shared practices. With the help of these objects, we will
see how ideas travelled and experiences were lived.
The walk begins in the Painting Gallery of the National Museum, followed by a visit to the
Decorative Arts section. A tour of the Numismatic and Arms and Armour galleries is
intended to read more utilitarian objects as statements of courtliness. In the Painting
Gallery, we will look at paintings from the Mughal, Deccan and Rajput ateliers. The
representation of courtly objects ranging from carpets to huqqa bases merit detailed
reading in terms of their iconography and context. Some of these objects will come alive in
the Decorative Arts section for a closer inspection. The craftsmanship of these objects and
their places of procurement will open us to the stories of their movements.

The walk was very well organised and excellently conducted. We could only look at a small fraction of the collections that were part of the itinerary, and this was because the host spent a great deal of time on each painting and artifact, 'reading' it as a text, making it come alive, so that it told its own story as well as forming part of a genealogy. It was a very fulfilling experience and I would certainly sign up for another such walk.
