Rajput Paintings

The late 16th and early 17th centuries saw the beginning of the Rajput paintings in the region of Rajasthan and the Hill States of Punjab. Most of these regions were ruled by the feudatories of Mughals hence significant Mughal influence is evident in these paintings. Besides Mughal traditions, the influence of Chaurapanchasika group style that predates Mughal paintings is also conspicuous in the paintings.

Nevertheless, certain aspects unique only to the Rajput School gradually developed which distinguished these paintings from other styles.
