Karnataka Mysore Paintings

Karnataka Mysore Paintings, Karnataka Mysore Paintings art and craft, Karnataka Mysore Paintings art of KarnatakaThe story of Karnataka's arts and crafts is never comprehensive without a reference to the traditional Mysore paintings. The art dates back to the Ajanta times and to the reign of the Vijayanagar kings. It was a ruler with a creative vision-Mummadri Krishnaraja Wadiyar-who revived the art of painting. The delicate lines, the graceful delineation of figures and the discreet use of bright vegetable colors and lustrous gold leaf, make the traditional paintings of Mysore very stylish and attractive. Many senior traditional painters have now started schools to teach this art to the younger generation. Chitrakala Parishat in Bangalore, which has a fantastic set of old paintings, has also started a school headed by the living doyen of traditional painting, Subramanya Raju.
