About Tanjore Art

...................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Sukruti Arts was created with a vision of aiding and promoting the interests of artists and encouraging the talent existing in rural regions. Our aim is to keep the Indian tanjore art alive and donate the proceeds for charity.

Tanjore paintings are the ultimate form of expression of love of godhead, truth, beauty and devotion. These paintings are deeply rooted in tradition and still innovative within limits. This art is sacred and dedicated.

The paintings are notable for their adornment in the form of semi-precious stones, pearls, glass pieces and gold. The rich vibrant colours, dashes of gold, semi-precious stones and fine artistic work are characteristics of these paintings. They add beauty and culture to a variety of surroundings and décor. The paintings are mostly of Gods and Goddesses because this art of painting flourished at a time when fine-looking and striking temples were being constructed by rulers of several dynasties. The figures in these paintings are large and the faces are round and divine. However, with the rebirth of this art in the twentieth century, artists in addition to recreating the original Tanjore figures are also experimenting with more proportioned figures, birds, flowers, animals, etc.

Distinguished / Recognised for the adornment of semi-precious stones and 22 karat gold foils, the creation of a Tanjore painting involves a lot of dedication and several stages of meticulous work..
