This is a foundation established by Ganesh Shivaswamy from Bengaluru. The Foundation presently focuses on structuring the legacy of Raja Ravi Varma, an influential Indian artist.
The foundation's platform was launched in September 2019 by Her Highness Shubhangini Raje, the Rajmata Ji of Baroda. The launch coincided with the commemoration of 125 years of the commencement of the Ravi Varma Press.
In 2020, the Ganesh Shivaswamy Foundation commemorated 150 years since the commencement of Raja Ravi Varma's professional career by showcasing paintings, sketches and archival photographs of the works of Raja Ravi Varma in collaboration with over twenty institutional and private collections from across the world.
