Simple, informative and well researched, The Painter paints a vivid picture of Ravi Varma’s life. Starting in Travancore, the book recounts how his simple talents are honed into path-breaking skill. The factual information comes across seamlessly woven into a fast flowing chronological narrative.

The author paints a vivid picture of Ravi Varma as a curious child, a precocious brother, a lover and eventually a father, all the while raging against the world for his art. A must for anyone curious about the origins of Indian art and perhaps even Indian cinema.
