Title: Humayun's tomb
Author(s): Grousset, Rene
Photographer: Arthur Llewellyn Basham
Keywords: Mughal Architecture-- Mughal period Delhi;architecture
Series/Report no.: Basham Collection
Description: Still displays the sober elegance of Iran, and recalls both Isfahan and some of the mosques of Constantinople in the time of Suleiman the Magnificent, & was in fact probably the work of a pupil of Sinan. But already the use of white marble & the absence of polychrome decoration distinguishes Mughal art from the Turco-Iranian school.
