Basoeki Abdullah has a remarkable talent in painting portraits. He brings a good name of Indonesia and himself to the world in art. In 1948, he wins an art contest held for the coronation of the Dutch Queen Juliana in the Netherlands and bested other 87 European painters,” she said.

Furthermore, the curator Agus Dermawan said the preparation of exhibition has started since six months ago. He mentioned one of the artworks that he concerned to the most was the painting made by Balinese painter Wayan Diane, the portrait of Bung Karno as Wisnu on a horse carriage in the midst of the sea of animals with the presence of an angel Ratna Sari Dewi.
