Find the best of Indian art paintings in this collection of folk art paintings from various regions of India. These Indian paintings depict Indian life through various schools of Indian art. Some paintings have a very old style and some are relatively modern paintings. We feature reproduction paintings from the Jamini Roy school of art and Kalighat paintings from West Bengal. Jamini Roy develop a unique style and identity, around 1925, he began experimenting with folk arts in India, borrowing ideas from the Kalighat paintings and the terracotta work of the Vishnupur temple. By the 1930s, he had switched over completely to indegenous styles and medium for his art - using his own painting surfaces of cloth, wood or even cane mats coated with lime, instead of the traditional canvas used by painters, and earth and vegetable colors for paints. His artwork definitively stepped away from the familiar styles of schooled training in art and embraced the wild lyrical beauty of the folk art of Bengal.
