Painting in India dates back to the pre-historic times when the caves were decorated with paintings of animals. The historians have derived substantial evidence of the life and advancement of ancient Indian Civilizations from these painting forms in India. From the cave paintings of the Mesolithic period to Rock paintings of Harappan Civilization and the paintings in the Ajanta and Ellora caves in the early Christian Era, the rich heritage of Indian culture is evident. The Golden Age of art forms like Paintings in India was during the reign of the Gupta rulers in 4th to 6th centuries. Then came the Miniature painting forms on leafs and wooden covers of manuscripts in the 16th century during the reign of The Palas. The tradition was carried forward by the paintings from the Rajasthani Schools of painting in India.
