Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them.

Babur’s son Humayun was ousted from India by an Afghan rebel in 1540, ten years after he came to the throne. After spending 15 years in exile, Humayun returned with military support from Iran and successfully reconquered Delhi. He also brought from Iran seven royal court artists who were invited to start a Mughal painting atelier. To illustrate the beginning of his own biography, Humayun’s son Akbar included this image of his father riding victoriously back to India.
