Maharaja of Mysore : Raja Ravi Verma Lithograph
Raja Ravi Varma is an iconic Indian artist, who is known for his unique oil paintings. They mainly depicted 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 print titled 'Maharaj of Mysore' is a depiction of Sri Krishnaraja Wadiyar, the ruler of Mysore between 1884-1940. The Maharaja regularly summoned artists to the palace and commissioned several portraits. This portrait of the young Maharaja in his regal finery is a classic -- note the quintessential pillar and dark maroon drapery that was Ravi Varma's hallmark for portraits of the Royals.
