Tanjavur Paintings documentation

The data collection began from Mysore private collections,National museum and Tanjavur

Thanjavur paintings are panelpaintings done on wooden planks, and hence referred to as palagai padam (palagai = "wooden plank"; padam = "picture") in localparlance. In modern times, these paintings have become souvenirs for festiveoccasions in South India - colourful pieces of art to decorate walls, andcollectors' items for art lovers, as also sadly sometimes, dime-a-dozenbric-a-bracs to be purchased from street corner practitioners
