General Surveys of Schools of Rajasthani Painting: An Outline of Early Rajasthani Painting

Title:General Surveys of Schools of Rajasthani Painting: An Outline of Early Rajasthani Painting
Author:Chandra, Pramod
Enumeration:Vol. 11 Issue no. 2; March 1958, p. 32-37
Abstract:The Western Indian painting tradition remained unchanged for about 500 years until the birth of the Early Rajasthani School in the mid-16th century. The Adipurana (1540) is the earliest example of this school which showed influences of both the Western Indian and later the Mughal style. The Sangrahani Sutra and Dasamaskandha are fine examples of the Early Rajasthani style, though the ragamala set of Chawand (1605) is the earliest dated set. This school of art reached its peak under Jagat Singh, and Mewar was its chief centre until 1680, when Mughal influences eclipsed it. Offshoots from the Mewar school were the Early Bundi and Malwa schools of painting. Themes in the Early Rajasthani period included scenes from the epics, the life of Krishna, the puranas, and ragas.
