THE EDIT

URVASHI AND PURURAVAS by Raja Ravi Varma

The painting portrays the tragic love story of Urvashi, a beautiful celestial nymph and the mortal emperor of the lunar dynasty, Pururavas. The oleographic print is embellished with colored beads by local Indian artists. Though Raja Ravi Varma’s paintings depict powerful imagery illustrating scenes from the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, this iconic oil print remains rather admired among avid art patrons today.

For patrons of Indian Art, the name Raja Ravi Varma has been familiar for more than a century. A depiction of the civilization of classical times, Ravi Varma’s style of painting played a foundational role in defining Indian imagery and left behind a brilliant legacy of academic realism.
