    As a continuation to the '20366 Fine Chinese Paintings and Contemporary Asian Art' sale at Bonhams Hong Kong on 23 November 2012, the same Californian private collector has released another 10 lots by this artist to the market (Lots 929-938). This batch of works includes oil on canvas as well as renditions on paper in watercolour, charcoal, pastel and gouache, demonstrating Strasser's dexterity in working with different media. His subjects are also diverse which range from Balinese boatmen and beauties to Japanese geishas as well as his self portrait. These works exemplify Strasser's personal image and his fascination with Asia, also documenting his colourful and well-travelled life.

    Austrian-born artist Roland Strasser studied painting in Vienna and Munich in the 1910s. He first travelled to Indonesia in 1920 and also visited Siam, New Guinea, China, India, Mongolia, Tibet, Japan and North Africa. Returning to Bali in 1934, Strasser lived and painted in his studio in the mountainous area of Kintamani for the next ten years, producing many portraits, figure studies and landscapes depicting the local scene. In 1952 Strasser immigrated to the United States and worked there until his death in 1974 in Santa Monica, California. His paintings are in private and public collections in cities as diverse as Vienna, Berlin, Sydney, Ubud (Indonesia), Honolulu, Los Angeles and Toronto.

    繼香港邦瀚斯拍賣行於2012年11月23日成功推出的羅蘭 ·史特撒爾作品,同一加州私人藏家再次釋出10個拍品組合(拍品編號 929-938)。這個系列包括油彩畫布以及多種紙本創作,如水彩、炭筆、粉彩和水粉,展現畫家對多種媒材的純熟駕馭。他筆下的主體涵蓋峇里島船夫和美人、日本藝妓和自畫像等,種類多元。這些作品不僅表現畫家自己的內心世界和對亞洲的迷戀,也為他遊歷多國的豐富人生留下見證。

    奧地利籍畫家羅蘭·史特撒爾早年求學於奧地利維也納及德國慕尼黑。他1920年首次到訪印尼,並遊歷暹邏(即今泰國)、新基內亞、中國、印度、蒙古、西藏、日本、及北非洲等地。史特撒爾於1934年重回峇里島,在 Kintamani 山區設立畫室,創作無數描寫當地風情的畫作。他在1952年移居美國後亦繼續致力作畫,史特撒爾於1974年在加州聖塔蒙尼卡市逝世。史特撒爾之畫作藏於奧地利維也納、德國柏林、澳洲悉尼、印尼烏布、美國檀香山、洛杉磯、及加拿大多倫多等地各博物館或私人收藏 。
