Description
About The Book

Basohli was among the earliest centres of ‘Pahari’ Painting which developed in the 17th and 18th century in the hill States of Jammu and Punjab. It combined the ancient tradition of folk art, associated with Hindu mythology, and Moghul technique. From this happy fusion arose a style of painting which is distinguished by its vibant colours, simplicity, frankness and passionate approach to theme. This publication sums up the existing information on this school of painting, and presents thirty-eight of the finest examples of the school.
