The Miniature painting as we seenow, expanded to the regional kingdoms of Rajasthan predominantlyafter the downfall of the Mughals. The Rajput miniatures trace theirorigins to the Mughals, who appointed Rajasthani artists to adorn theirmonuments; these artists in turn brought the art form home, whichflourished under the princely patronage. The Mughal influence veryprominent in the beginnings, slowly gave way to regional block motifs.Even to this day, the classical element and aura of these paintingssurvive at the hands of the successors of the erstwhile artisans
