GLORIANA AND AKBAR THE GREAT
Patronage and the Arts
The long, extraordinary, almost contemporaneous reigns of Emperor Akbar (r.1556-1605) and Queen Elizabeth 1 (r.1558-1603) have given us two of history’s most Charismatic and colourful figures. The end of Elizabeth and Akbar’s extensively chronicled reigns marked the birth of the momentous relationship between England and the Indian subcontinent.
This illustrated talk by Nima Poovaya-Smith, Director, Alchemy, explores how they provide astonishingly similar insights into the nature of patronage, power and the arts.
