Mera Bali
Rajasthani Paintings have been a centre of attraction for all. During the early medieval period, perhaps early 5th century, a unique art form took shape in Marudesh (present day Rajasthan). During this period Marudesh saw tremendous changes in the political and cultural sphere and these changes lent a helping hand in further development of art. By the onset of seventh century; art of painting and sculpture had reached its zenith in this area.
Colorful tradition of Rajasthanis reflects in art of paintings as well. This painting style is called Maru-Gurjar Painting. It throws light on the royal heritage of ancient Rajasthan. Under the Royal patronage various styles of paintings developed, cultivated and practiced in Rajasthan and reached its pinnacle of glory by 15th to 17th centuries. The major painting styles are phad paintingsminiature paintingskajali paintingsgemstone paintings etc. There is incredible diversity and imaginative creativity found in Rajasthani paintings. Major schools of art are MewarMarwarKishangarhBundiKotaJaipur and Alwar.
