Jakarta @copyright Dr IWAN S 2010
I had starting interesting and collecting Painting from 1984 when many foreigners came to Indonesia asking me to find the native ethnic paintings, but also the expatriate painting collectors said to me that the painting’s investations value low due to the non professional painters or due to repro or fake paintings. Ihave seen some best painting from old dutch painters and indonesian painters wakidi and Oesman Effendi from west Sumatra,but I didnot by their painting because too many fake or his son repro paintings.
In 1985, a dutchman visit my house and he told me that he ever met Indonesian painter Oesman Effendi which stayed at his father house near the john enschede printing office, he stayed three month to painting the Indonesian Money , everyday he made sketch wayang painting and other paintings, if he didnot like he thrown out, the dutchman as a boy made this for playing, very pity he didnot collect that sketch because now the Oesman Effendi sketch very expensive at least Oesman Effendi and his friend ABDUL SALAM HAVE MADE THE PAINTING OF THE 500 RUPIAH INDONESIAN MONEY PLEASE LOOK BELLOW ;
1. FRONT BY OESMAN EFFENDY
2.BACK BY ABDUL SALAM
Before pass away Oesman Effendi stayed at Koto Gadang Bukittinggi, he still made some paintings but I didnot bought because I didnot understans and many fake repro by his son.
After that I had collecting all kind of literature related with the Painter history and their paintings, The famous painter masterpiece painting auctions, but I still didn’t understand how to estimated the painting’s investation value, that is why I did not bought the masterpiece painting of Famous Indonesian Painters Affandi during Affandi’s daughter Kartika sold some of his father master price painting in very low price for paid his father medical treatment cost in 1996 only US8000.- and I had seen the same painting sold at the Auction in 2006 US$250.000.-The same situation when I visit Sudjojono painting shop in Jogya 1984, and The La Meiyer sketch at his wife Nji Polok shop beside the Musuem, and Ida Bagus Made did not want to sold his native painting because not finish with frame he said to me if you want to buy comeback next year.
After almost 35 years learning from many literature, I still didn’t understand the value of a painting, but two weeks ago when I look again my vintage Painting literature I met several literature and starting to look at my paintings collections one Vintage Dutch Oil Painting of Nederland landscape from my grandpa who bought from the Dutchman in Indonesia before the WW II, Two watercolour black and white painting by DATUK BASA, Padang Ocean beach and ANAI Waterfall Padang Panjang , found at Padang city in 1986,Dutch expatriate painters BETAWI found at Jakarta 1998, and the Mountain ANONIM ,Also some painters sketch .
After read the literature and take the close up picture of the painting, I am starting to understand how to estimate the painting’s INVESTATION value and write this e-book for painting collectors.
I REMEMBER DURING YOUNG BOY IN 1979, I ever met the famous Indonesian painters DULLAH at the BRANTAS HOTEL Surabaya, he stayed in the from of my room,in the morning he paint a waterfall painting, he told me that he always made the sketch in in notebook when trevelling, he show me that sketch and he told me to give the soul of the painting we must give the sun rays from the east to the waterfall, when I aske my father to bought that painting, he said to expensive that time US40.000.- but I think now the value US $ 100.000.-
When my friend Mr Fikri asked me to show my painting collections, I cannot show the masterpiece because I did not understand the investation value, I only told he that I have met many Indonesian Famous painters ,seen their masterpiece painting, and I have write the autobiography of Indonesia Senior painter which you can read in this blog.
