Raden Sudjono Abdullah (1911-1993) was born in Surakarta (Solo), Central Java. His father, Abdullah Suriosubroto (1878-1942), was a landscape artist and first trained him in romantic realism in the Barbizon school. He later studied art and graduated from Hollandsche-Inlandsche School.  
Abdullah became famous for his genre scenes of Javanese life and culture, and romanticized landscapes around his home. While at a glance, his art appears to hark back to that of the colonial-style, Mooi Indie or Beautiful Indies, his connection and love for his motherland evident in his artistic lens.

In  Harvest, the artist's confidence and freedom come across in the brushstroke, punctuated with ethereal, wispy clouds. Larger in the foreground, then slowly diminishing midway through the pictorial space are lyrical figures, loosely knit yet held together by sweeping rhythms that bind the land, mountain, sky, and harvesters together.


This lot is to be sold without reserve.
