The Rajput school of art is mainly centred in the towns of Jaipur, Mewar, Kishangarh and Bikaner in Rajasthan. Mughal miniaturists brought their art to the ateliers of the Rajput princely state in the 17th century. They typically depict palace activity, hunting subjects and religious scenes, and are known for their bold colours and strong profiles.
