Raja Ravi Varma (1848 –1906) was an Indian painter and artist from the princely state of Kilimanoor (presently in Kerala) who achieved recognition for his paintings depicting scenes from Indian literature and mythology including the epics of Mahabharata and Ramayana. He is considered among the greatest painters in the history of Indian art and his paintings are considered to be among the best examples of the fusion of Indian traditions with the techniques of European academic art. Varma's paintings portrayed sari-clad women in graceful manner which became an important motif of that time, reproductions being found in many homes.

Raja Ravi Varma 3

PowerPoint Presentation:

Raja Ravi Varma is famous for his paintings based on Indian mythology & epics. He is 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. 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. He became a world famous Indian painter after winning in 1873 Vienna Exhibition 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 was the first and the only person in India to have had a personal, special post office, provided to him in view  of the high volume of fan mails arriving as cartloads.
