If we talk about Raja Ravi Varma, he was a world-famous Indian painter and artist. He is one of the few painters who have managed to accomplish a beautiful unison of the Indian traditions with the techniques of European academic art. Born on 29th April 1848, in Kilimanoor, a small town of Kerala, Raja Ravi Varma is known for his amazing paintings which mainly revolve around the epics of Mahabharta and Ramayana.
