India abounds in traditional narrative art forms, and it stands out because of its diverse tribal and folk art traditions. In this paper, I wish to investigate the narrative tradition of Madhubani paintings located in the Mithila region of Bihar in the Eastern part of India. I propose to investigate the Madhubani art form in relation to its history, practice, pioneers and representative masters, and the technicalities central to this art form with a special focus on its significance to the community of its artists and practitioners, and vice versa.
