AUKE SONNEGA: ARTIST OF THE ENCHANTING TROPICS by Didier Hamel
The Dutch artist, Auke Sonnega, arrived in Batavia in 1935 and during a 23-year sojourn painted on the island of Java, Bali, and Sumatra. Strikingly, inspired by Indonesian wonders, the artist developed his unique "Art Deco" composition merging in great harmony with the tropical atmospheres he enjoyed.
Published on the occasion of the centenary of Sonnega's birth, this luxurious and well documented biography definitively celebrates this legendary artist, who belongs forever to the "Golden Age of Bali".
