         Raja Ravi Verma (1848 – 1906) is famous for his paintings based on Indian mythology & epics.  He was was born in Kilimanoor Palace as the son of Umamba Thampuratti and Neelakandan Bhattathiripad.  Even at the young age his talent was spotted by his uncle Raja Raja Varma, (Ravi Verma used to draw on the walls) and he gave him initial training in painting.  

                 Later he learnt water colour painting from the palace artist Rama Swamy Naidu.  He learnt oil painting from the British artist Theodor Jenson.  

       Towards the end of the 19th century, when there was a lack of vitality in Indian painting, he was one of the few artists who re-introduced Indian subjects in his works.  

       If anyone would like to see his paintings, there is a good collection in the Musuem at Baroda palace’s Fatehsinh Musuem where Raja Ravi Verma had also served the Gaekwad Maharaja.
