Raja Ravi Varma (1848-1905) became the first painter to achieve fame and fortune as an independent, professional artist and thus broke barriers for future artists. A member of the Indian nobility, he dispelled the notion of the painter as a low-class artisan, and, at a time of great enthusiasm and uncharted expectations, Antonio Xavier Trindade, Varma's contemporary, played a key role in this formative period in the history of Indian art. Fond of landscapes, in addition to portraiture and genre scenes, Trindade painted still lifes and nude studies as well. Like many of his Bombay contemporaries, he did not respond to the nationalistic rhetoric to Indianize art. He was a Roman Catholic born and raised in Portuguese Goa, fluent in English and Portuguese. He also spoke his native dialect, Konkani. According to his daughter Angela, Antonio Trindade belonged to a large family with strong ties to the church. Zeferino, the artist's father, had five sisters and four brothers. The ancestral home in Assonora, a village in Bardez, Goa, was known to locals as "the House of Friars," because two of Zeferino's brothers were Dominican friars. Zeferino himself had intended to become a priest but left the seminary in the last year of his studies and joined the customs department of the government of Goa.
