Painting

Several others followed in his footsteps, but is was not until decades later that Indonesia could boast a number of painters whose work could stand comparison with those of their colleagues in Europe and the Americas.

Nowadays, Indonesia can boast of having many talented college — trained painters of almost any school, as well as some older artist whose work has won international acclaim. One of the most famous of modern Indonesian painters were the late Affandi and Basuki Abdullah, whose works are sought by collectors in many countries.

Leaving aside Bali’s traditional painting styles for a while, it can be said that the art of painting as it is understood in the west is a relative newcomer to Indonesia. Considered to be the pioneer of modern painting in this country is Raden Saleh (1816 — 1880 ), a naturalist painter who received his artistic training in the Netherlands.
