Rembrandt and Shah Jahan

The Paul Getty Museum did an exhibition juxtaposing Mughal art of Shah Jahan from 1600's with the sketches of Rembrandt 1000's of miles away inspired by the tales. 

A book goes with it. NY times could not resist making the connection in a recent, beautiful examination of one miniature work on Shah Jahan.

Thank you for the pointer to the NYT article - so interesting! And the closeups, for example of the pendant, show fascinating details of the painting.
