About the Artwork +

In artist Mohan Prajapati's exquisite Miniature artwork, "The tale of Bani and Raja," the viewers are transported to the resplendent era of Kishangarh, where art, passion, and devotion entwine. Bani Thani, a gifted singer and poetess who captures the hearts with her grace and charm, finds her muse in Raja Samant Singh, a king who abdicated his throne, choosing love over power. Together, they retreat to the idyllic Brindavan, a sacred realm associated with Krishna's divine presence, which Samant Singh adored. Prajapati's brushwork pays homage to the rich legacy of Mughal miniature painting. This art form's roots stretch back to the 6th and 7th centuries BCE, evolving into a mesmerizing fusion of Indian and Safavid Persian styles. The result is a visual feast, where vibrant colors, intricate patterns, and symbolic motifs take center stage. Myths and legends come to life with each stroke, each hue carefully chosen to evoke emotions and tell stories. Prajapati's work embodies the heart and soul of Mughal miniature painting, a testament to an art form that immortalizes love, devotion, and history with each brushstroke.

    Miniature Paintings


      Gracious strokes artfully done with a single haired brush, marks the detailing in the renowned Miniature paintings. The genesis of the Mughal miniature painting is said to be one of the pivotal points of visual history of India. An extravagant and striking fusion of the Indian style, whose roots that go back to the 6th and 7th Centuries BCE, and the Safavid style of the Persian school gave birth to the Mughal School of miniature painting. Under the patronage of Mughal emperors like Akbar and Jahangir, miniature art became the primary mode of historical archiving. The visual splendour of courtly scenes, historic wars, secret trysts of lovers, tales from mythology, and much more were captured in detail by the many schools of miniature painting throughout India. An intricacy so fine that the painting cannot be viewed alone with naked eyes and needs magnifying glass to view the details. The vibrancy of the paintings were brought out by natural colours from indigo, precious stones, shells, pearls, real gold and silver. Towards the end of the 18th century, Mughal miniatures started losing their sheen with the loss of genuine patrons for the delicate artform. Yet, till date the schools of miniature painting continue to pass the traditional skills on, with Rajasthan holding on strongly to the artistic legacy of the Mughal miniature paintings.
