Indian Painting

Indian Painting as a significant form of art has flourished in the subcontinent since times immemorial as is evident from the various literary sources like the Buddhist palm-leaf manuscripts, the murals of Ajanta, Ellora and other frescoes, the Jain texts, the Mughal, Deccan and Kangra schools of miniature Indian painting as well as the wide assortment of remnants that have been discovered. Indian painting is regarded as a very old tradition and many ancient texts and anecdotal accounts suggest painting entrances and indoor rooms was a common practice among various households.

. Indian paintings provide a pleasing continuum that extends from the early culture to the recent times. Indian paintings are stunning and lively, gracious and classy and at the same time bold and vigorous. A first glance at an Indian painting would appear like a clutter of male and female figures but these depictions provide the basic of Indian music and art forms.

Indian paintings can be broadly classified into two categories, namely murals and miniatures. Murals are elaborate expressions on the walls of solid structures while miniature paintings are those which are executed on various perishable items such as cloth and paper. The western impact on Indian paintings had inspired them to illustrate Indian themes based on Western ideas of composition, perception and realism. Some of the notable Indian paintings include Rabindranath Tagore’s ‘Self Portrait’, Jamini Roy’s ‘Jesus’, Raja Ravi Verma’s ‘Musicians’, Sunil Das’s ‘Bull Series’, Bikash Bhattacharya’s ‘Bull Series’. The Indian paintings in fact describe beautifully the essence of the glorious Indian culture and traditions.
