Lahore, the capital of Pakistan's Punjab Province, is today a large sprawling city of almost eight million people that also serves as Pakistan's centre for education and the arts. In its pasts the city has had two major periods of glory - during the reigns of the Great Mughals and during the rule of Ranjit Singh and his two sons with the century separating the two a virtual terra incognita. Under British rule there were new influences on art subjects and materials from Europe, and with Partition, a vibrant new modern painting was born in the city. This book presents new research on painting and calligraphy produced in Lahore, written by scholars who live in the city today. [Verlagsinformation]
