The largest known Mughal painting, portraying Emperor Jahangir seated on a gold throne is to be put for auction at Bonhams in April. The estimated base price is 1 million pound.

The painting of Jahangir is in the style of a European portrait of the early 17th century. Previously shown in the National Portrait Gallery in an exhibition on the Indian Portrait in 2010, the extraordinary detail and complexity of this painting both fascinate and bewitch art lovers.
