Mysore & Tanjore Style Paintings - Art

Mysore style painting is an important form of classical South Indian painting that originated in the town of Mysore in Karnataka. The traditional paintings of Mysore represent a miniature continuation of the Vijayanagar murals. The emphasis in this style is on iconic representations of Gods and Goddesses from Hindu epics and mythology. Mysore style painting involves gesso work and the use of 22K Gold for ornaments. Tanjore painting is a major form of classical South Indian painting from the town of Thanjavur (anglicized as Tanjore) in Tamil Nadu, India. The art form dates back to about 1600 AD, a period when the Nayakas of Thanjavur encouraged art—chiefly, classical dance and music—as well as literature, both in Telugu and Tamil. Tanjore paintings are known for their surface richness, vivid colors, compact composition and especially the glittering gold foils used to give the paintings their rich look .
