Miniature Painting is very popular since 15th Century in Bikaner. The art of Miniature painting was introduced by the Mughals, who brought the much-revealed art form from Persia. In the sixteenth century, the Mughal ruler Humayun brought artists from Persia, who specialized in miniature painting. These artists, on their part, trained Indian artists who produced paintings in a new distinctive style, inspired by the royal and romantic lives of the Mughals. During this time, several schools of painting evolved, such as Mewar (Udaipur), Bundi, Kotah, Marwar (Jodhpur), Bikaner, Jaipur, and Kishangarh. The miniature artists use paper, ivory panels, wooden tablets, leather, marble, cloth and walls for their paintings. This style of painting essentially depicts Radha and Krishna as divine lovers, and beautifully portrays their mystical love. Today, many artists continue to make miniature paintings on silk, ivory, cotton, and paper.
