Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Purchased from the artist by the current owner's grandfather, circa 1946.

    Born in Solo in central Java, Abdullah was taught to paint by his father, Abdullah Suriosubroto (1878-1941), a prominent landscape painter and one of the pioneers of Indonesian modern fine art in the early 20th century. Both were among the most sought-after Mooi Indië (Indonesian beauty) artists, a school that tends to romanticise their subjects. Examples of his work can be found in the Indonesian National Gallery.
