Ravi Varma Lithograph

Get Latest Price

Printed in Germany in the 1940s. Depiction of the young Mysore Maharaja Jaya Chamarajendra Wodyer.
Ravi Varma was a prince from a small province of Kerala who became a famous painter in the 19th century. He was known for his portraits and religious subjects that fused European techniques with Indian traditions. As his original paintings were not affordable to many, he decided to make prints first abroad and then imported a lithograph machine from Germany to produce prints at the Ravi Varma Press. This oleograph is a polychrome lithograph, where the different colours are each carved on separate stones and then placed one by one into the press.

Wooden, polychrome from Tamil Nadu. Early 19th century. Dwarapalakas traditionally appear in pairs in Hindu architecture outside the temple door or/and sanctum as gatekeepers or guardians of the deity. These guardians are fearsome warriors or giants and are often seen holding a mace, as this one is. This dwarapalaka’s tongue is sticking slightly out which is a warning mudra, ‘be careful I am here.’
