Nainsukh of Guler

Nainsukh of Guler was one of the foremost artists in the Pahari School of miniature painting. He is the most cherished, the most documented of painters to emerge from 18th century Punjab hill states of the Himalayan foothills.1 “Born to a family of Pahari painters (his father Pandit Seu and elder brother Manak were famous Pahari painters who are still revered by art historians), Nainsukh found his artistic fulfilment in carving out his own style of painting. And those left an indelible mark on the history of Indian art.”2
