TANJORE PAINTING

Tanjore Painting or Thanjavur painting is a classical South Indian painting style, which was inaugurated from the town of Thanjavur. It is distinguished by its famous gold coating. Thanjavur paintings are characterised by rich and vivid colors, simple iconic composition, glittering gold foils overlaid on delicate but extensive gesso work and inlay of glass beads and pieces or very rarely precious and semi-precious gems.
