Tanjore Painting: Origin: Thanjavur, Tamil Nadu India
Tanjore Painting is a classical South Indian art developed in the late 16th century in Thanjavur, also known as Tanjore in Tamil Nadu, a south Indian state.
The paintings consist of a well-rounded figure, a deity with almond-shaped eyes. The figure would be housed in an enclosure created by means of an arch, curtains, etc.
In this Indian folk art, gold leaves & sparkling stones are used as highlights for accents of the painting like ornaments, dresses, etc.
It’s been said that Thanjavur’s paintings are brightly colored and beautiful. In a dark room, the paintings have a potent glow that’s reminiscent of a presence. Most Thanjavur paintings are made on wooden canvasses while some use glass and walls as well.
