Rajasthan is a legendary land of chivalry, sacrifice, romance and heroism. It is a place where colours, too, assume the magnitude of legends making it also the legendary land of India’s miniature paintings. Rajasthan and colours are synonymical : be it the colours in the eyes of a coy maiden; the glowing gold on the countenance of a youth; the brilliant colours of Rajasthani costumes; or the colours scattered on the leaves of paper. Rajasthan with its art activity scattered over the entire land with Mewar, Bikaner, Jodhpur, Kotah, Uniara, Kishangarh, Jaipur and Bundi as its principal centres, has to its credit some of the world’s masterpieces in miniature paintings. The author in this study of Bundi miniatures has attempted to apprehend, though on a smaller scale, the trends and tendencies in the development of Bundi art style during late 16th century to mid 19th century. She has tried to find out the great secret and the mystic strength of inherent lines and colours of Bundi paintings and has thus attempted to know the great ocean by a segment of it.
