Raja Ravi Varma ( 1848- 1906 ) is a world famous Indian painter who won the Vienna exhibition in 1873. The Painter Prince with Kshatriya blood (Indian Warrior Clan) traditionally achieved territorial conquest through the might of arms – but Ravi Varma, the Painter-Prince’s conquest was of the human heart and aesthetic perception through the might of his brush.He was a modern among traditionalists and a rationalist among moderns. He provided a vital link between the traditional Indian art and the contemporary, between the Thanjavoor School and Western Academic realism. Raja” was a title given to him in recognition of his talent. He was richly educated and, unknown to many, also a poet, painting with words as well as color.
