Tent Panel

India, Mughal, c. 1700

Cotton tabby, embroidered with silk

This colorful red panel, which is a piece of quilted cotton fabric embroidered with silk, undoubtedly embellished one of the magnificent tents used by the Great Mughal and other Indian princes when they embarked on hunts, inspection tours, or campaigns.

The pattern, with a centrally placed, flowering plant, was much loved in India. Here it is quite stylized. The plant emerges from an almost abstract vase and the flowers’ species are not clearly defined. This depiction coincides with stylistic developments in around 1700, when art under the Great Mughal Aurangzeb returned to a more traditional Muslim, non-naturalistic depiction of reality.
