Description

This study of Bundi miniatures attempts to apprehend the trends and tendencies in the development of Bundi art style during late 16th century to mid 19th century.

Rajasthan with its art activity scattered over the entire land with Mewar, Bikaner, Jodhpur, Kotah, Uniara, Kishangarh, Jaipur and Bundi as its principal centers, has to its credit some of the world's masterpieces in miniature paintings.

Rajasthan is a legendary land of chivalry, sacrifice, romance and heroism. It is a place where colors, too, assume the magnitude of legends making it also the legendary land of India's miniature paintings. Rajasthan and colors are synonymical be it the colors in the eyes of a coy maiden; the glowing gold on the countenance of a youth; the brilliant colors of Rajasthani costumes, or the colors scattered on the leaves of paper.

The author has tried to find out the great secret and the mystic strength of inherent lines and colors of Bundi paintings and has thus attempted to know the great ocean by a segment of it.
