Description

Mysore Painting is an important form of classical South Indian painting, that originated in and around Mysore city in Karnataka. After the fall of the Vijayanagara Empire, artists lost patronage. However, Raja Wodeyar I, of Mysore, helped several families of painters.

In the Mysore Painting style, the gesso work is low relief compared to Tanjore paintings. Known for their elegance, muted colours, and detail, Mysore Paintings also borrows from the style of painting found in Kerala murals, with the use of water colours.

This intricate painting from the 1940-50's, depicts Lord Ram's coronation ceremony. There is light fading at the base of the painting, as well as the top, within the green background.
