Ravi Varma Arts

Raja Ravi Varma

        I have been fascinated by the paintings of Raja Ravi Varma (1848-1906) since my childhood...His contemporary collections predict reality..

       Great injustice has been done to the artist Ravi Varma in our country because he used modern hues and oils in his work and because of the western influence in his paintings. The critics said his was not Indian art... To me, Ravi Varma is not only among India's greatest artists, but also a great patriot. His depiction of the beauty of the Indian woman is unequalled in Indian art.....

           Here are some of his paintings i really admire and i hope u too will love it.....

Lady with a child and a dog

Jatayu, a bird devotee of Lord Rama is mauled by Rawana

Lady lost in thought

A lady playing Swarbat

A lady playing veena musical instrument

Arjuna and Subadhra

Lady with Fruit

The Orchestra

Village Belle with brass pots

Damayanthi talking to a swan

Shakuntala stops to look back at Dushyanta

A lady carrying a lamp

Draupadi carrying milk honey
