FEATURE - Kangra Painting in Search of Patronage

The pictorial art of Kangra is one of the finest gifts of India to the art-world. It originated in a small hill state ‘Guler’ in lower Himalayas in 18th century when a family of Kashmiri painters trained in Mughal Style of painting sought shelter at the court of Raja Dalip Singh of Guler. The new arrivals mingled with the local artists and were greatly influenced by the atmosphere of the hills. The artistes adopted themes of eternal love between Radha and Krishna. Verdant greenery of the landscape, brooks, springs were the recurrent images on the miniatures. This style reached its zenith during the reign of Maharaja Sansar Chand Katoch (1776-1824) who was a great patron of Kangra art. Currently, Kangra painting faces the challenges unorganized marketing though people across globe have a taste for this unique Indian art form practiced in Kangra district and its surrounding areas in Himachal. The Kangra Arts Promotion Society (KAPS), Dharamshala is working for its conservation and promotion, passing on the art form to next generation and helping in streamlining marketing by holding exhibitions at various places including foreign countries. However, Kangra paintings need government patronage for its conservation and branding that will give a tremendous boost to this art form, feel experts in this field - here is the link to the feature - http://www.divyahimachal.com/himacha...-of-patronage/

It all depends upon the quantity of snowfall during the period, the NH will be kept open, but I am not sure about the conditions from the NH to Kalpa via Reckong Peo, because during this period last year there was about 4-6 feet of snow at Reckong Peo and vehicular movement stops during such conditions. You can get hired vehicles from Kalka.
