This school of paintings originated in Thanjavur during the reign of the Marathas in the 16th century.Today, this tradition is kept alive by a few hundred dedicated artists mostly based in Tamil Nadu, India.


A typical Thanjavur or Tanjore painting would consist of one main figure, a deity, with a well-rounded body & almond shaped eyes. This figure would be housed in an enclosure created by means of an arch, curtains etc. The painting would be made by the gilded and gem-set technique – a technique where gold leaves & sparkling stones are used to highlight certain aspects of the painting like ornaments, dresses etc
