Who among the following Mughal Emperors shifted emphasis from illustrated manuscripts to album and individual portrait?(2019)

a) Humayuan

b) Akbar

c) Jahangir

d) Shah Jahan

Answer: C

Jahangir was also deeply influenced by European painting. During his reign he came into direct contact with the English Crown and was sent gifts of oil paintings, which included portraits of the King and Queen. He encouraged his royal atelier to take up the single point perspective favoured by European artists, unlike the flattened multi-layered style used in traditional miniatures. He particularly encouraged paintings depicting events of his own life, individual portraits, and studies of birds, flowers and animals.
