Philatelic Art

Bani Thani


Kishangarh is a town in Ajmer district  of Rajasthan.. It is the birthplace of the Kishangarh style of painting, which is known for the beautiful depiction of a courtesan known as Bani Thani. India Post issued a postage stamp featuring this famous painting on May 5, 1973.

In 1952, by sheer chance, a bundle of paintings wrapped in cloth were found dumped in the corner of an old fort in Kishangarh. On inspection they turned out to be one of the great treasures of Indian art, the Kishangarh miniatures, inspired by the divine lovers Radha and Krishna, and lost to the world for over 200 years.In 1778 the great exponent of the art of miniature painting, Nihal Chand, created the legendary face of the Kishangarh Radha, the quintessence of Indian womanhood and grace.
