Tanjore or Thanjavur Painting (Golden Paintings)

Tanjore or Thanjavur painting is a classical South Indian painting style, which originated in the town of Thanjavur/ Tanjore in Tamil Nadu, India during the reign of the Marathas and Nayakas in the 16th century. These paintings are characterized by rich vibrant colors, dashes of gold, overlaid on delicate but extensive gesso work and inlay of glass beads and pieces or very rare precious and semi-precious gems.
