Raja Ravi Varma is an iconic Indian artist, who is known for his unique oil paintings, mainly depicting scenes from epics like Mahabharata and Ramayana. His work combined western realism with Hindu iconography, painting deities, Gods, and Goddess in the likeness of human-kind.
He was instrumental in making affordable lithographs of his paintings available to the public. His work increased the involvement of the common people with fine art and moulded their artistic tastes.
This is an original Ravi Varma lithograph from the press in Karla, Lonavala, Maharashtra. It was printed by Anant Shivaji Desai for sale in Moti Bazar Mumbai. This press printed Ravi Varma’s artwork between 1906 and 1945.
This is a depiction of Savitri and Satyavan. Savitri was the daughter of King Ashwapati and his queen Malati. She was an intelligent beautiful woman who was unable to find a suitable life partner. To aid her in the search for a suitor the king appoints an aged minister to travel with her. During her travels she meets Satyavan, who is a prince and the son of defeated king Dyumatsena. Although he was destined to live for only a year, Savitri was keen to marry him.
