Though extremely popular in South India the Tanjore and Mysore traditions of painting have not received the scholarly attention that other popular traditions have enjoyed. Art historian Barbara Rossi places them midway between classical and popular traditions.

This form of painting is painstaking and difficult and is practiced by very few artisans. There are no written guidelines for learning. The skill was passed on from artisan to artisan over generations. The author, an engineer by profession, learnt this fine art from a trained teacher. The author felt that written instructions with sketches will help many more to understand and learn. He has ventured to put into words his knowledge on the subject through this book. As no formal book of learning on this art exists.

Both these forms are classical South Indian paintings. Tanjore painting was inaugurated from the town of Thanjavur and Mysore painting was originated in and around the town of Mysore in Karnataka.
