History About the Art
Madhubani, which by one account means Forest of Honey, (‘Madhu’-honey, ‘Ban’-forest or woods) is a region in Mithila region of Nepal and the northern part (Madhubani district) of Bihar. The paintings are the exclusive monopoly of artists and their knowledge has been passed from generation to generation, from mothers to daughters.The Madhubani paintings is an ancient style of painting that originates 2500 years ago. Legend has it that The King of Mithila ( a region now in modern Nepal and with its capital Janakpur) had first commissioned rural artists to paint the palace walls. The occasion was his daughter’s wedding. The name of his daughter was Sita and the bride groom was Lord Rama.
How this is made ?
- Madhubani art is usually done by filling the colours with brush. This process is carried out either by filling or hatching. Hatching refers to the use of line in the paintings.
- Many paintings use both filling as well as hatching.
- This style of painting has been traditionally done by women of the region, though today men are also involved to meet the demand.
- The colors are extracted from plant
