About Mohan Kumar Prajapati
The Original Mughal Miniature Painting is a dying art being carried forward by just a few highly skilled artisans centered around the Jaipur area.
Mohan Kumar, who won the State award in 2004, comes from one such family. “It is difficult to say when my family was initiated into the art, all I know is that my father taught me what he learnt from his father and I’m now teaching my son,” he says.
Mughal miniatures are exquisite for the precise detail they embody. The jewellery worn by the Queens or their costumes — bring a life-like quality to the pictures.
