    Process of Mysore paintings

    The first step in Mysore's painting was to prepare the ground. Paper, wood, cloth, and wall bases have been used in different ways. Paperboard was dried in the sun from pulp or waste paper and then rubbed smooth with polished quartz pebbles.

    Mysore Folk Art of Karnataka

    The peak of popularity of the Mysore School of Painting came under the rule of Raja Krishna Raja Wodeyar. However, after Raja's death in 1868, the artists began to disperse and the school was on the verge of complete extinction. In 1875, Jagan Mohan Palace and the Chitrakala School were founded and a revival of Mysore painting took place in India. The late Sri Siddalingeshwara Swamiji and the late Sri Y. Subramanya Raju also gave their part to this exquisite art form. Mysore Painting Schools in India are located in Mysore, Bangalore, Narashipura, Tumkur, Shravana Bellagola, and Nanjanggud.
