Rogan Painting-Tree of life



The heritage of Rogan painting of Kutch

Artisan: M. Jabbar Khatri

Rogan art originated in Persia and came down to Kutch 400 years ago, though there are no historical evidences justifying this statement. In the Persian language, ‘Rogan’ literally means oil based painting. In the olden days, Rogan art was used on bridal clothing, as beautiful borders on the traditional Ghagras and on odhnis (bed spread). Though Rogan painting has no elaborate history, nor any ritual or religious relevance attached to it, the significance of the art lies in the credibility of the work and the painstaking efforts of the artists. The art form is a fabulous example of the rich cultural tradition of India. To read more about the art, visit our blog
