Rembrandt and the Inspiration of India
'The collaboration between scholars of Dutch art (Schrader and Robinson) and Mughal painting (Glynn and Rice) offers a welcome balance between Western and non-Western viewpoints that yields interesting new insights into Rembrandt's engagement with the increasingly interconnected world of early modernity' -

This handsome examining the impact of Indian art and culture on Rembrandt in the late 1650s
With essays written by both scholars of both Dutch and Indian art, this volume demonstrates that Rembrandt's contact with Mughal painting inspired him to draw in an entirely new, refined style on Asian paper-an approach that was shaped by the Dutch trade in Asia and prompted by the curiosity of a foreign culture.
A close examination of the Mughal imperial workshop provides new insights into how Indian paintings came to Europe as well as how Dutch prints were incorporated into Mughal compositions.
