Jaipur Miniature Paintings

The historic, colourful and bustling city of Jaipur, Rajasthan, is home to some remarkable artists who are repositories of that ancient skill: the painting of miniatures. Arastan is delighted to bring you some exquisite pieces of this art form, painted by an award-winning Rajasthani artist.

The Jaipur style of miniature painting developed during the Mughal era - resulting in a happy synthesis of indigenous Indian art with the Safavid school of Persian painting. Read more on the history of miniature paintings at the Arastan Journey blog.
