New Forms of Imperial Art - Lesson Summary

European artists brought with them new styles and techniques of painting which the Indians were unfamiliar with. These artists painted on a variety of subjects, like picturesque, landscapes, portraits and historical events.

European picturesque paintings portrayed India as an unusually striking and interesting land, far from any modernization.

Thomas Daniell and William Daniell were famous picturesque painters in the colonial period. The portrait paintings were life-size and portrayed the wealth, lifestyle and status of the person in the picture. One of the most famous portrait painters to visit India was Johann Zoffany. The European historical paintings depicted always British supremacy over Indians.
