Footnotes

  • Provenance: acquired by the owner in 1965.

    Considered by many the seminal Indonesian painter, Affandi had a long and vibrant career commencing in the 1930's with the Kelompok Lima Bandung group. After living in India in the the later 1940's and travelling in Europe, he collaborated with Peliukis Rakyat in the later 1950's. His works convey an immediate connection between brush and subject; a churning vitality and energy which pulls the audience into a participatory relationship with the canvas. In this work, the faces are in a constant state of emerging and dissolving among the swirling vortex created by the artist's brush.
