Scope note
Refers to a regional school of Rajasthani miniature painting centered around the city of Raghogarh in Malwa in central India. The patrons of this school of painting were the Rajput rulers of the Khichi Chauhan clan, whose capital was at Raghogarh. The school, which flourished in the 17th century, is stylistically related to the Bundi school although the link between the two is unclear. Figures are often depicted with small waists, delicate limbs, large eyes, and somewhat elongated heads. Raghorgarh painting continued until the 19th century.
