Indian Portrait

Today the National Portrait Gallery in London opened its latest biggy The Indian Portrait 1560-1860, which continues until 20 June. The exhibition brings together 60 portraits from the last three centuries, beginning with paintings from the Mughal Court. This picture shows a life-size portrait of the Emperor Jahangir holding a globe (1617) attributed to Abu’l-Hasan, the largest painting to come from the Mughal empire. The artwork looks primitive, but admission is free. Click the title link for more information. CLICK for a slide show.

"The art work looks primitive but the admission is free" What those that mean?

That the art isn't worth paying an entrance fee to see, but might be worth a visit if you're passing or have time to kill in your lunch hour.
