he earliest surviving miniature paintings are on palm leaves from the 10th century and on paper from the 14th century. The images accompanied texts in religious manuscripts and illustrations of mythological epics. With the advent of the Mughals in the mid 16th century the subjects of miniature paintings included portraits court scenes flora and fauna. In the Rajput in Rajasthan and Pahari in the Punjab hills courts the paintings continued to bring to life poetry age old legends religious mythology and the moods of love and changing seasons.

Miniature paintings are beautiful handmade paintings which are quite small in size. The highlight of these paintings is delicate brushwork which lends them a unique identity. The colors that are used in these paintings are handmade from minerals, vegetables, indigo conch shells and pure gold and silver and precious stones. There were a number of miniature schools in the country including those of Rajput Mughals and the Deccan.

The miniature paintings of Mughal period are interesting. The artists of that period mainly emphasized on portraits, court scenes, flora and fauna.
