Abstract

This is the first critical study to examine the artistic and political attachments between the Mughal and the British empires during a time of their fraught coexistence. Based on ground-breaking archival work, this book analyses mimesis through the lenses of mimicry, equivalence and the menacing double all of which contributed to the formation of a hybrid aesthetic in South Asia.
