Raghogarh Painting

The erstwhile kingdom of Raghogarh in Rajasthan had its own school of painting since the 17th century. Usually plain background was used to emphasize the main characters in these painting. The striking feature of this style of painting was the relatively smaller size of the lesser important persons like the servants, horsemen and soldiers. Contrasting to that, the significant persons like kings and noblemen were shown in their appropriate size.
