Description: The paintings come from Chamba, a Rajput state in the Punjab Hills. Represented here are religious and courtly scenes: Radha and Krishna, Siva and Parvati, Ram Darbar, and The Worship of Siva. The Mughal style is seen in the costumes, compositions, and treatment of landscape and background, but the murals lack the exquisite finish of classical Mughal paintings.
