Hidden Truth – Raja Ravi Varma’s Inside Story

Rukmini Varma is a leading Indian artist who paints in the classical tradition. Born in 1940 as Princess Bharani Thirunal Rukmini Bayi Thampuran of Travancore State, Rukmini is a great-great granddaughter of the master painter Raja Ravi Varma and custodian of his artistic legacy. She is also the Chairperson of The Raja Ravi Varma Heritage Foundation based in Bengaluru. Having gone through a cataclysmic change in her life from being a princess to renouncing it all and living life as a commoner, Rukmini came out of a long sabbatical and exhibited her latest works in the series titled “Opulence and Eternity” in early 2017. Between painting and her prayers, Rukmini has penned “Hidden Truth” – Raja Ravi Varma’s Inside story a book on Raja Ravi Varma, with facts known only to her and drawn from hitherto unrevealed sources.
