Art + Pop Culture


Identify the painting and the painter. Also explain how has this painting become famous in recent times.

Answer: The painting is Lady Musicians by Raja Ravi Verma. Well, I am told that this painting shows the various ways to drape a sari. But I don't think that is why it became more famous recently. This painting features prominently on the world's most expensive sari, although 10 others of Raja Ravi Verma's paintings are pictured on its border.
