Pichwai paintings belong to the Indian tradition of painting,
especially in the Rajas State. This folk art has developed to
a high standard during the last thousand years.
These pichwai paintings are delicately painted on pure silk.
The painters are professional artists who work in commission
for Mr. Hoogendijk who provided them with his own examples.
