INDIA'S 16th-CENTURY invaders, the Moguls, insisted on drawing and painting that had perspective, unlike the flat indigenous style of the time. One result is the 18th-century portrait above. It is estimated at pounds 100 to pounds 200 in Christie's South Kensington's big clear-out sale of Oriental, Tibetan, Himalayan and Islamic Art from the London dealers Spink.
