Book Description Koninklijk Instituut voor de Tropen, 1999. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 160 pp., illustrations. Pictures from the Tropics presents four centuries of painting in the former Netherlands East Indies. By way of the most important works now in the Dutch public domain, an entirely new survey, partly based on the latest art historical research, has been created. Marie-Odette Scalliet extensively discusses seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth century painting. David van Duuren defines portrait art as a genre in the eighteenth and nineteenth century Indies, with the emphasis on the 'Portrait Gallery of Governors-General'. Koos van Brakel outlines the cultural climate of the early twentieth century Indies, and assesses colonial painting within the context of western art. Jeannette ten Kate, finally, focuses on the traditionally unique position of Bali-based artists within the colonial painting scene. This book furthermore offers a complete inventory list of all the Indies-inspired paintings in the Tropenmuseum, Amsterdam, the National Museum of Ethnology (Rijksmuseum voor Volkenkunde), Leyden, the Rotterdam Museum of Ethnology (Museum voor Volkenkunde), Museum Nusantara, Delft, the Museon, The Hague, Museum Bronbeek, Arnhem and the Gemeentemuseum, Alkmaar, thus making these invaluable collections more easily accessible.
