Abstract:The rich painting tradition in Rajasthan is evident in the folk murals on the walls of houses and palaces at Berath, Amber, and Udaipur, illustrated manuscripts in the Jaina Bhandars, and miniature paintings of Kishangarh, Jaipur, and Mewar schools. Kripal Singh Shekhawat is a well-known painter who has maintained the traditional form of painting and contributed to its further development. Miniatures are being made in Nathdwara, Udaipur, Jaipur, and Bikaner. Other contemporary styles are the paintings on long scrolls (phads), and small paper paintings of various deities by the Joshis.
