Miniature and Fresco Paintings of Bikaner: A Walk Through the Studio of Renowned Artist Mahaveer Swami

The Bikaner style of miniature painting is very different from that of other parts of Rajasthan. The subjects painted are often inspired from Indian mythology. Mahaveer Swami,  one of the most renowned miniature painters from Bikaner, involves in his works innovative experimentation with styles and subjects never seen before. He has been practising miniature painting for decades and has exhibited his work across the world, including Paris, Korea, Japan, France and other European countries. This walk will take you on a journey of appreciation of Swami’s spectacular workmanship and expertise with the brush.

This guided tour is free.
