Webinar | Raja Ravi Varma: The Man Behind The Myth | 9 December 2021

Widely regarded as one of the early pioneers of modern Indian art, Raja Ravi Varma played a critical role in the development of the genre at the beginning of the movement for Indian Independence. However, he was helped on this journey by his relationship with two men – his brother, C Raja Raja Varma, and his son, Rama Varma. Join author Manu S Pillai as he delves deeper into the interwoven threads between the three Varmas (and the extended family network) and how they all contributed towards the survival of Ravi Varma’s style in our next Dialogues in Art webinar.
