Tanjore painting

One of the most popular forms of traditional Indian art is Tanjore paintings. Emanating from the cultural bedrock of the nation – South India. Since the last 200 years, artists from Tamil Nadu especially in Tanjore – the erstwhile capital of the Chola dynasty, are credited with creating some of the finest modern designs using evergreen classical styles. The Rajus of Tanjore and Nayudus of Madurai are specifically highlighted as exponents of this particular style of painting.

Tanjore paintings employ unique style of adorning gold, glass beads and precious stones with colours to bring out a rich effect to the entire canvas. Since it has its roots from an era where striking looking temples were being erected all around the princely states of Tamil Nadu, these painting too carry the same religious theme and depict gods and goddesses primarily in the paintings.

Tanjore paintings are carved on wooden planks and are in demand from art connoisseurs and painters alike.
