Ravi Varma

Raja Ravi Varma [Bio 1848-1906] is considered one of the greatest painters in Indian's history.  I really like the way he portrays Indian women.  There was time when I used to think that all the women in India looked like Indira Gandhi!  ;-) There are more Varma images here and here

Here's what the Wikipedia said about Raja Ravi Varma.

His paintings are considered to be among the best examples of the fusion of Indian traditions with the techniques of European academic art.

Raja Ravi Varma is most remembered for his paintings of beautiful sari clad women, who were portrayed as very shapely and graceful. His exposure in the west came when he won the first prize in Vienna Art Exhibition in 1873.
