  • About

    In the lush landscape of Rajasthan, a woman recently emerged from bathing admires herself in a mirror held by her attendant. Such intimate scenes are beloved in Bundi paintings, especially those from Ragamala (Garland of melodies) series. Located between Jaipur and Udaipur, the paintings of Bundi reveal a combination of Deccani and Mughal elements and styles.
