What happened to the artists who earlier painted miniatures ? How did the painters of Indian courtsreact to the tradition of Imperial Art ?

before the colonial rule, painters in india mostly concentrated on Miniature style. but with the advent of british rule,the artists of there bought new styles and new convention of painting.like the feature of oil paining of which indian artist were not familiar. so indian miniature painters at first resisted but when imperial art became famous and they have no livelihood,many of them  turned to british art.

painters of indian courts also denied the popularity of it.Like tipu sultan resisted to this british art and tried to restore cultural traditions of that time. At murshidabad  court situation was entirely different . but the end of the day court poets also turned to imperial art.
