Title:Album of Wall Paintings
Author:Kang, Kanwarjit
Enumeration:Vol. 30 Issue no. 4; September 1977, p. 69-76
Abstract:Murals of the 16th-19th centuries at Amber, Bairat, Jaipur, and other places show that the wall painting tradition was in vogue in Rajasthan, and received royal patronage. The Mughal influences were fully absorbed under Sawai Jai Singh (1699-1743). The techniques used in Rajasthan were siah-kalam and oil painting, but mainly a fresco-technique.
