Creating an Indian Beauty

Online Event

RRV invitation

Rounding off our Season Five, the fifth talk in the series by Deepanjana Pal, author and journalist, was interesting and impactful for its fresh perspective. Deepanjana’s book The Painter: A Life of Raja Ravi Varma is a non-fiction tale and the author makes no bones about the fact she has interspersed fiction and imagination in parts, while staying true to the history of Ravi Varma. Having been ingrained that fiction doesn’t necessarily mean fictitious, Deepanjana’s focus on how Ravi Varma’s art created a feminine ideal for a changing India in the 19th century, was candid and refreshingly full of candour.
