Traditional Painting Orissa Revisited, edited by Pratapaditya Pal,

Title:Traditional Painting Orissa Revisited, edited by Pratapaditya Pal,
Author:Fischer, Eberhard, Pathy, Dinanath
Enumeration:Vol. 52-3, p. 105-130
Abstract:For many centuries, widely differing groups of people from Orissa have been producing and using paintings. Traditional painting in Orissa can be traced back to the Udayagiri caves (2nd century BCE). There are three kinds of paintings, based on the medium: bhittichitra (wall paintings), patachitra (textile paintings), and talapatra or pothi chitra (paintings on palm leaves). The article discusses each of these types, and ends with a section on the master artists and their work.
