Though Oriental art was invented in China and Japan, but with the great contributions from Abanindranath Tagore, Nandalal Bose, Abdur Rahman Chughtai and other prominent artists, Oriental art was introduced in the Indian
subcontinent. Oriental style was mainly based on watercolour

Oriental cultures and medium
that is both powerful and
emphatic.

realism to create a new form.

of ink and colour.
