Bharat Milap : Raja Ravi Verma Lithograph : Lonavala : C 1940

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 lithograph is titled ‘Bharat Milap’ and is a depiction of a scene from the epic tale Ramayan. In this scene, Lord Ram has returned, triumphant, to Ayodhya after fourteen years in exile. Hanuman flies ahead to inform Bharatha who, overjoyed, leaves at once for Nandigrama, a village on the outskirts of Ayodhya, to receive his brother. Bharatha carries Lord Ram’s wooden sandals or padukas, the royal white umbrella and a fly whisk. In this picture, Varma includes other royal trappings such as a throne and sword. This affirms Bharatha’s joy in handing the reins of kingship back to his brother.
