Rajput painting, also called Rajasthan painting, evolved and flourished in the royal courts of Rajputana in northern India, mainly during the 17th and 18th centuries. Subjects varied, but portraits of the ruling family, often engaged in hunting or their daily activities, were generally popular, as were narrative scenes from the epics or Hindu mythology, as well as some genre scenes of unnamed people.
The colors were extracted from certain minerals, plant sources, conch shells, and were even derived by processing precious stones. Gold and silver were used. The preparation of desired colors was a lengthy process, sometimes taking 2 weeks. Brushes used were very fine.
The colorful state Rajasthan has a rich inheritance in its paintings. Beautiful and bold, these paintings depict the rich historical past of the state of Rajasthan. The style and varieties of these paintings are as diverse as the state itself. From the point of view of historical traditions in Rajasthani painting the Mewar School occupies first place. Mewar School of paintings is one of the most important schools of Indian miniature paintings of the 17th and 18th centuries and it distinguished itself by creating a superlative vocabulary in miniature paintings.
