India is known for its artistic pursuits, evident in the various styles of paintings. Paintings are one of the most creative modes of self-expression. They gain historical importance when they manage to depict the conditions and more importantly the thoughts of their times. Miniature Paintings, apart from being a very accomplished art form in India, are the most authentic story tellers of their times. Beneath their colorful veneer, hides stories of kingdoms lost and ways of life coming to an end.
These Indian miniature paintings are from the Rajasthani schools of art. Finely cut slices of top quality marble are used as a base for these gold leaf work paintings with intricate art work and detailing. The art came into prominence after the ban on ivory. The ivory miniatures were very popular in India up to the mid 20th century. These marble miniatures are also available in an elegant wooden frame.

Maharaja Sawant Singh of Kishangarh, (1748-1757) a princlely state of Rajasthan, fell in love with a slave girl who was brought from Delhi by his stepmother. She was a singer, poetess and was attracted towards the love songs for Lord Krishna. Since she was elegantly dressed and remained decorated and well behaved, she was known as Bani Thani, meaning well dressed. King Sawant Singh commanded his chief artist Nihal Chand to paint her portrait and since then Bani Thani is portrayed as Radha and Sawant Singh as Krishna. The paintings obtained a new style for Radha and Krishna figures. The golden era of Kishangarh paintings was during the time of Sawant Singh. He developed new expressions and forms that propagated this splendid style of Kishangarh..The high stylization for the expression of feminine beauty is the supreme achievement of the Kishangarh school of art.
