Kishangarh (Thikana), Warli, Phad Paintings

Western India comprises the states of Rajasthan and Gujarat and the region boasts of some the most famous folk paintings styles in India. The vibrant culture of this region is characterized by bright colours set against the dry and arid landscape of this desert region. Our collection of paintings from this region includes Kishangarh, Warli and Phad paintings.

Phad painting, a form of folk painting that originated in the princely state of Shahpura, is typically done on a scroll or phad in a panel format. The narratives of the folk deities of Rajasthan are depicted on them or legends of erstwhile local rulers.

Warli paintings originated in the Western Ghats of India, in 2500 BCE, by the Warli tribe. This is easily one of the oldest art forms of India. It is characterized by the use of circles, triangles and squares to form numerous shapes and depict daily life activities like fishing, hunting, festivals, dance and more. All the paintings are done on a red ochre or dark background, while the shapes are white in colour.
