Orchha Paintings

Aruna (Author)
Synopsis In the history of Central Indian Art, the wall-paintings of Orchha occupy a unique position. The artists, under the patronage of Kings, adopted long-lasting techniques in the creation of murals, depicting values dear to them based on the Vedas, the Epics – the Ramayana, the Mahabharata and the various Puranas etc. These Paintings and murals have not received due exposure, prominence and importance from the viewpoint of cultural study. The present work is an attempt to fill this gap. The book, attempts to bring out finer aspects of Art, Culture, Historical background and theme of each painting, Socio-Religious activity and behaviour of the people of Orchha. An attempt has also been made to analyse various techniques and styles used in the making of murals used in the making of murals and paintings of Orchha. Detailed themes of paintings and murals have been described in light of historical and cultural prominence. The book is copiously illustrated with colour plates, and line drawings making it the most comprehensive coverage of the Orchha art and its times.
