Series/Report no.: Basham Collection
Description: With the reign of Shah Jahan a new style made its appearance. The massive use of marble, which became almost the only noble material, and of multilobate arcades, became general as well as the use of bulbous domes with narrow collars. The Moti Masjidin Agra fort is an example of this new manner, in which simplicity of line is coupled with care of detail and precision, to give the imperial style a richness of expression worthy of the empire of the Great Mughal.
