- From the eighteenth century, a stream of European artists came to India along with the British traders and rulers. The artists brought with them new styles and new conventions of painting. They began producing pictures that became widely popular in Europe and helped shape Western perceptions of India. European artists brought with them the idea of realism. This was a belief that artists had to observe carefully and depict faithfully what the eye saw. European artists also brought with them the technique of oil painting – a technique with which Indian artists weren’t very familiar. Oil painting enabled artists to produce images that looked real.
