Floral Rajasthani Miniature Painting

A glorious riot of graceful flowers in vibrant colours, very much in the Mughal style, is in the centre of the painting, with a butterfly hovering above. The intricate border is also made up of delicate flowers, highlighted by real gold borders, set against a rich and regal purple silk surround. Truly, a painting fit for royalty.

Indian miniature painting is an art form that can be traced back to the 10th century. Jaipur in Rajasthan was, and still is, the centre for these fine miniatures. The artists use a palette of natural organic colours, as well as real silver and gold, to bring miniature paintings to vibrant life. As well as handmade paper, a variety of other materials are also used to paint on, including wood, ivory and marble. Read more on the history of miniature paintings at the Arastan Journey blog.
