Pergamon Museum - A Gallery in a Book. Islamic Albums

The creation of albums (muraqqa) was common in parts of the Islamic world from the 15th century onwards. Featuring outstanding examples produced under the rule of the Islamic Mughal emperors (1526–1858) in India, this exhibition provides an overview of this special form of art collection. The albums were commissioned by art lovers and functioned as mobile galleries.
