PAINTINGS

Painting as an art form has flourished in India from very early periods as is evident from literary sources and also from the remnants that have been discovered.

Indian Paintings can be broadly classified as the murals & miniatures. Murals are huge works executed on the walls of solid structures. Classic examples are the paintings in Ajantha & Kailasantaha temple.

Miniature paintings are those executed on a very small scale on perishable material such as paper, cloth, etc., Though this style had been perfected by artisans under the various rules, not many remain today. Prime examples are the Rajasthani & Mughal miniatures.

Contemporary artists have kept up to the times & excel in their modern works, giving free expression to their imagination & artistic liberty.
