Rini by Soekarno

Our first president was not only a keen collector of arts but also a decent artist himself. He finished off the Dullah’s neglected sketch and produced this masterpice. The painting is part of the State Palace collection and currently being exhibited in Galery National Indonesia under 17:71 Goresan Juang Kemerdekaan or Painting the Struggles of Independence exhibition until August 30th, 2016 along with other masterpices from notable artists such as Raden Saleh, Affandi, Sudjojono, etc.
