  • Thumbnail for One of group of six Balinese paintings of women
    One of group of six Balinese paintings of women

    Six virtually identical paintings varying slightly in size depicting four bare breasted Balinese women surrounding a fifth operating a traditional loom ( a skill important to her desirability as a wife). This set is illustrative of a mode of routine production in which Balinese culture is transformed into a marketable commodity and a way of making a living in the developing cash economy of 20th century Indonesia. Dickinson accesssioned items 1985.8.41.11 and 12 are similar to the other six, but depict other idealized female activities: applying cosmetics, dressing and making flower ornaments.

    Balinese painting on paper

    Represents a dramatic climax of the Calonarang ceremony. Although this is a powerful dance drama performed in temples during the middle of the night, it is depicted as an isolated scene on white background depicting a warrior attacking Rangda with a keris. This particular episode, abstracted here in painting, is similarly abstracted for dance performances staged for tourists, for whom such paintings would be offered for sale. It is painted in a refined style associated with the village of Ubud.

    Balinese painting on cloth

    Signed in ink in margin: Made Sudana. Rice farmer. Batuan, Bali - tourist painting. (When western tourists request signatures on otherwise unsigned paintings at the point of sale, the seller may write a name in the margin which may be his own, or may be that of the painter. Because there are only four personal names used in Bali for both men and women, there will be an enormous number of people alive at any given moment with exactly the same name. In this case one quarter of every member of a Sudana lineage will be named Made.)

  • Thumbnail for Japanese four-fold screen
    Japanese four-fold screen

    Gold leaf and paint. Depicts court ladies enjoying an outing in a summertime landscape. Painted in the Heian style, possibly illustrating a scene from the Tales of Genji. The details are focused on the all-important social groups (as many anthropologists have argued, it has been historically the small, face-to-face group--not the individual--that is the elemental unit of Japanese society) and the elegance of the courtly textile fashions represented.
