Basuki Abdullah definitely the best realist painter Indonesia ever have, he was the best in romanticizing object into glamour royalty. Some of the paintings displayed here are the collection of the first president of Indonesia Dr Ir Soekarno or widely known as Bung Karno [above], who has extensive collection of fine arts.
