      Note: The Mysore Traditional Style of Painting was developed and encouraged by the rulers of the princely state of Mysore, in particular the Wodeyar dynasty. Unlike the Tanjore traditional style uses gesso-work (embossing of ornaments), on which thin gold leaves are applied. Age-old techniques of colouring of gold and of adhesion make these works long lasting unaffected by tarnishing or atmospheric corrosion. The Mysore Traditional Style of painting has been used mainly to depict scenes from the Ramayana, Mahabharata, Devi Bhagawat and other ancient vedic scriptures.
