A poor gypsy family sitting by the street – Raja Ravi Varma 1848-1906


“Damayanti”: The most renowned of all of Ravi Varma’s portraits, this painting captures the melancholy of the heroine and adorns it with the simple rendition of sari and its accompaniments. The background, including the swan is in perfect synchrony with the main subject matter.
