Maharaja: The Splendour of Indias Royal Courts is a fascinating exploration of the world of the Maharajas and their extraordinarily rich culture. Focusing on the period from 1700 to 1947, the authors examine the spectacular and varied objects created under the patronage of Indias kings - including paintings, jewellery, textiles, and dress-within the context of changing royal status and identity.
