Mewar Paintings

Mewar painting, one of the most important schools of Indian miniature painting of the 17th and 18th centuries. It is a school in the Rajasthanī style and was developed in the Hindu principality of Mewār (in Rajasthan state). The works of the school are characterized by simple bright colour and direct emotional appeal. The comparatively large number of paintings to which dates and places of origin can be ascribed make possible a more comprehensive picture of the development of painting in Mewar than in any other Rajasthani school.
