Raja Ravi Varma (1848-1906) is one of the most famous of the Indian painters. He was born in Kilimanoor Palace in Kerala to Umamba Thampuratti and Neelakandan Bhattathiripad. His talent was first noticed by his Uncle Raja Raja Varma, when he at an age of seven drew figuresĀ using charcoalĀ on the walls of the palace. Most of his paintings depicted beautiful Indian women clad in tradition wear; also includes stories from Ramayana and Mahabharata, the bonding between Yashoda and her son Krishna. He became a world famous Indian painter to win the Vienna Exhibition in 1873.
