During the last decade the number of western publications about contemporary Asian art has steadily grown. Yet in the field of Indonesian studies the modern visual arts have so far only been treated in Claire Holt's classic Indonesia: Continuities and Change (1965). Part of this extensive cultural study was dedicated to the development of modern painting in Indonesia, based on Holt's research during the 1950s and 1960s.
