Conversation on Raja Ravi Varma at Carlos
Anubhav Nath on Raja Ravi Varma
Sunday, October 18 | 1 PM
We mark the final day of Transcendent Deities: The Everyday Occurrence of the Divine with a talk by Anubhav Nath, director of the Ramchander Nath Foundation in New Delhi, which loaned the embellished chromolithography prints from the Raja Ravi Varma Press to the exhibition.
Nath will discuss Ravi Varma's life and artistic production, from his work as a painter of the aristocracy in India to a purveyor of prints that had unparalleled influence on both religious imagery and popular culture in India. Nath will also discuss the secondary craft industry of adorning the prints with fabric, beads, and embroidery as a form of worship.
