The exhibition explores his work and offers insights into his rich and varied life. Viewers can begin their journey from Kilimanoor Palace in present-day Kerala, where was born and raised and move on to the finer nuances found in his paintings – that merged the Indian aesthetic sensibilities with the European academic style.

As a special experience, one can also take a guided tour of his artworks to the tune of Indian classical music. The exhibition can be viewed on desktop and mobile at Google Arts and Culture. (IANS)
