Khalili Collection of Islamic Art" series. The Nasser D. Khalili collection of Indian paintings, comprises works dating from the early 16th to the mid-19th centuries, represents the production of Muslim ateliers such as those within the imperial Mughal courts, the Deccani sultanates and the provincial cities of Oudh. In addition to pages from many well-known Mughal illustrated manuscripts, the collection includes more unusual images, such as one from an almost unknown Akbarnamah.
