Miniature Painting



Miniature painting, as the name signifies, is a complex, colorful painting. It is small in size and is executed meticulously with delicate brushwork. The colors used in miniatures are generally derived from natural sources and materials. It is said that miniature paintings originated in the 6th- 7th century. The miniature artists gave self-expression on paper, ivory panels, wooden tablets, leather, marble, cloth and walls. Many of the miniature paintings are based on Ragas or musical codes of Indian classical music. Some of the noted miniature schools were those of Mughals, Rajputs and Deccan.
The world of miniature paintings is perhaps the most fascinating in Rajasthan, India, with exclusive and distinctive schools of painting, i.e., Mewar, Marwar, Bundi-Kota and Amber-Jaipur.
