craft Story

Miniature art: Small wonders!
Artists were cameramen of those days, says Sachin Kothari, of Fine Arts School, Udaipur, of Mewar Art. “They accompanied the king wherever he went, and would instantly paint scenes from these outings.” Mewar art, a popular miniature art form from the 16th and 17th centuries, characterized by bright colours and mostly religious forms in the earlier years, included snippets of royal life from around the 18th century. It is this art form that Kothari, 62, is working hard to preserve.
