Mushfiq (17th Century) was active/lived in India.  Mushfiq is known for Painting.

 Mushfiq spent almost his entire career in the atelier of the Mughal general and bibliophilic patron Abd al-Rahim Khan-Khanan. Mushfiq was a talented and highly regarded artist, possibly a house-born of the "Lord of Lords" (Verma 1994, p.308). We are told by Abd al-Baqi Nihavandi in his biographical work the Ma'asir-i Rahimi of 1026 AH/1617 AD that Mushfiq was personally trained by Abd al-Rahim Khan-Khanan, and that the general had a transforming effect on the artist's skills and qualities, bringing about an almost alchemical enhancement of his talents (Seyller 1999, p.318). As well as one of the key painters of the atelier, Mushfiq was also a personal attendant of the Khan-Khanan.
