Raja Ravi Varma 2

PowerPoint Presentation:

Raja Ravi Varma (1848-1906) probably the first Indian artist to master perspective and the use of the oil medium; the first to use human models to illustrate Hindu gods and goddesses; the first Indian artist to become famous, before him painters and craftsmen were largely unidentified; and the first to make his work available not just to the rich elite but also to common people by way of his oleographs. Raja Ravi Varma is famous for his paintings based on Indian mythology & epics. He was was born in Kilimanoor Palace in a royal family of those times. His mother was a poet, his father was a Sanskrit scholar and his uncle was an amateur artist, who taught young Ravi his initial art lessons. Varma was the first Indian to use Western techniques of perspective and composition and to adapt them to Indian subjects, styles, and themes. He won the Governor’s Gold Medal in 1873 for the painting Nair Lady Adorning Her Hair. In 1894 he set up a lithographic press in order to mass-produce copies of his paintings as oleographs, enabling ordinary people to afford them. That innovation resulted in the tremendous popularity of his images, which became an integral part of popular Indian culture thereafter. Raja Ravi Varma (1848 – 1906) “A prince among painters and a painter among princes”
