Tanjore painting is a classical South Indian painting style, which was inaugurated from the town of Thanjavur (anglicized as Tanjore) in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, India. The art form draws its sources and inspiration from about 1600 AD, a period when the leaders of Thanjavur encouraged all forms of art.
Modern Tanjore paintings are panel paintings done over a wooden base. The paintings are decorated by gilded and gem-set technique, where 22 ct gold leaves & sparkling synthetic stones are used to highlight and create a 3D relief effect on certain aspects of the painting like ornaments, dresses etc. to give the painting an ornate look.
In Tanjore paintings one can see the influence of Deccani, Vijayanagar, Maratha and even European styles of painting. Both religious and secular subjects are depicted in Tanjore paintings.
This unique Tanjore painting will make a wonderful addition to any family home, whether simply for the art or as a homage to one of Hinduism’s most beloved goddesses.
