In the early 19th century artists trained in the Mughal tradition, began to apply their skills to the western art form of the architectural elevation. The Indian love of meticulous detail and miniaturist style, which can be seen in the treatment of the pierced screens and inlay work, combined well with the western architectural style. The understanding of perspective was slow to develop, however, and early watercolours by Indian artists display a flat and decorative depiction of the buildings.
