Raja Ravi Varma

Raja Ravi Varma (1848-1906) was an Indian painter. His paintings are considered to be the best examples of mix of Indian traditions and European academic art. And of course he is one of the best artist in Indian history of art. Won an award for his exhibition in Vienna in 1873 and after that he became quite popular outside India.

I think his paintings are quite interesting especially for people not living in Indian culture.
