Default Early SouthIndian/Deccan artists

The text below is from a book I once photographed, but unfortunately I dont have any notes from where it is.
The text is, however, quite interesting, and very likely.

Yes, I guess so. When speaking about influence from Turkey in the Deccan, the influence from South India should be added.
The big question is, how much influence were the 'new' artists allowed to have on what they made in their 'new' country?

Jens, the text comes from India: Art and Culture, 13001900, by Stuart Cary Welch (1985).

According to the Metropolitan Museum of Art: "India: Art and Culture 13001900 is the catalogue for the exhibition INDIA!, held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, from September 14, 1985, through January 5, 1986, the most extensive survey of Indian art ever assembled by a museum in the United States."

An online version is available. It is out of print but I found copies for sale through abebooks.

Ian.

Ian, you have a very good memory, thank you for the tip.
I have the book, but did not see the exhibition I am sorry to say.
