Glowing with muted radiance in countless homes and temples for more than 200 years, Thanjavur art and Mysore glass paintings have celebrated stories from the epics and the imagery of gods and goddesses in a unique amalgamation of art, religion, colour and craft. The artists who perfected Thanjavur art in the Maratha court of King Serfoji and Mysore glass art at the ateliers of the Mysore maharajas have also left behind a pictorial record of the ruling monarchs, courtiers and aristocracy, the fashions, foibles and artefacts of the era in a series of frames many of which have survived to this day in museums and family archives.
