Raja Ravi Varma (Apr 29, 1848 - Oct 2, 1906)

Raja Ravi Varma was an Indian painter and artist. He is considered among the greatest painters in the history of Indian art. His works are one of the best examples of the fusion of European academic art with a purely Indian sensibility and iconography. Additionally, he was notable for making affordable lithographs of his paintings available to the public, which greatly enhanced his reach and influence as a painter and public figure. The Ravi Varma Fine Art Lithographic Press was set up in Girgaum, Bombay and commenced its operations. The first chromolithograph, 'Birth of Shakuntala' (also bears the spelling 'Sakoontala') was launched in July, 1894. His lithographs increased the involvement of common people with fine arts and defined artistic tastes among common people. Furthermore, his religious depictions of Hindu deities and works from Indian epic poetry and Puranas have received profound acclaim. He was part of the royal family of erstwhile Parappanad, Malappuram district.
