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 borrow from the style of painting found in Kerala murals, with the use of water colours.

  • ABOUT Tanjore

    The tradition of Thanjavur, or Tanjore painting, a classical South Indian painting style, was inaugurated by the town of Thanjavur (also known as Tanjore). It developed during the reign of the Maratha rulers between the 17th and 19th centuries.
    Tanjore paintings are characterized by rich, flat colours, simple compositions, glittering gold foil work, and the use of glass beads and sometimes precious and semi-precious gems.
