Rajput Painting



Rajput painting originated in the royal states of Rajasthan, somewhere around the late 16th and early 17th century. Rajput paintings depict a number of themes and events from epics like the Ramayana and the Mahabharata.
Many paintings were done on the walls of palaces, inner chambers of the forts, havelis, particularly, in the forts and palaces built by Shekhawat Rajputs. The colors used for the painting were extracted from minerals, plant sources, conch shells, precious stones, gold and silver, etc.

In the beginning of the 16th century, various Rajput Painting Schools were opened. Mewar School, Bundi-Kota Kalam School, Jaipur School, Bikaner School, Kishengarh School, Marwar School, and Raagamala School were the most prominent ones.
