|| Miniature Painting ||


The Museum has a good representative collection of miniature paintings of the Pahari School of Art, and also a good number of miniatures of the Rajasthani idiom, and paintings concerned with the Sikh Art. Almost all important centres of Pahari Schools are represented in the collection of miniatures. Thematically also, there are some rare examples of sets of paintings not found elsewhere. Also there are many paintings in the nature of portraits of different rajas who patronized the Pahari schools of painting. Most of the paintings were executed by and large by anonymous painters but there are a few examples in the collection wherein the painters are identifiable either by inscribed labels or by comparison with similar representations already identified. There are paintings accompanied by inscriptions mentioning the name of the painter or the patron.
