Painting as an art form has flourished in india from very early periods as is evident from literary sources and also from the remnants that have been discovered.

Indian paintings can be broadly classified as the murals and miniatures. Murals are huge works executed on the walls of solid structures. Classic examples are the paintings in Ajantha and Kailasantha temple.

Miniature paintings are those executed on a very small scale on perishable material such as paper, cloth, etc., Though this style had been perfected by artisans under the various rules, not many remain today. Prime examples are the Rajasthani & Mughal miniatures.

Contemporary artists have kept up to the times are excel in their modern works, giving free expression to their imagination and artistic liberty.
