Thanjavur Painting

Thanjavur paintings are traditional art of Thanjavur which was developed by the Serfoji Kings who ruled Thanjavur during the 17th century A.D.


The uniqueness of these paintings is its dark colors, surface making, embossed with pure gold leaf, embedded with semi precious stones. Colorful glass pieces and occasionally pearls are used to embellish the Thanjavur painting.


The themes are usually deities and the paintings have the vital quality of folk art which is its major redeeming feature.
