Dhruv Narayan by Raja Ravi Verma The man who was known to make affordable lithographs of his paintings available to the public, which enhanced his influence as a painter and public figure to an enormous extent. The oleographs produced by the press were mostly of hindu gods and goddesses In scenes adapted mainly from The Mahabharata , The Ramayana and the Puranas. Widely accepted now as one of India's premier artists. In his day he was criticised , not only for his ostentatious style , but his rebellious and decidely unconventional approach to his subject matter . Mass production of his work led to enormous criticism , where he was even charged at Bombay court with cases of obscenity, offending public morality and hurting religious and cultural sentiments of people. He was the first painter to visualise gods and goddesses in a human form . Raja Ravi Verma was the first artist in Indian history to fight for what he believed in are as a concept . #instapic #instagood #indianart #indianartifacts #indianartists #indianartisans #rajaravivarma #rajaravivarmapainting #rajaravivarmaartgallery #natural #nature #interiordesign #vintagefashion #vintage #vintageart #vintageartworks #rajaravivarmaartgallery #traditional #blogger #artbloggers #artblogging #krishna #krishnanarayana #narayana #painting #art #artblogging #artist
