Will Schofield image blogs examples of Basholi paintings. Schofield's post quotes blogger Vinayak Razdan who describes the style: "Basohli Paintings evolved in the 17th and 18th centuries as a distinctive style of painting fusing Hindu mythology, Mughal miniature techniques, and the folk art of the local hills. The painting style derives its name from the place of its origin - the hill town of Basohli. . . in the state of Jammu & Kashmir."
