Fisherman at Work by the Seashore by Itji Tarmizi (Lintau, Sumatera Barat, 1939, – Jakarta, 2001)
As a member of Hendra Gunawan’s People’s Painters group, Itji Tarmizi often depicted the tough daily life of fishermen by the sea shore. While his best known paintings feature his sophisticated realism, his works are often more spontaneous and expressive sketch-like oil paintings. The details that he highlights in the painting, such as the figure of the man sowing the sails of the boats, evidence that he is mainly interested in exploring the theme of work in the scenes that he depicts.
This painting is one of the artworks that will be auctioned in Sidharta Auctioneer's Fine Art Auction on October 7th, 2012, at Darmawangsa Square, Jakarta, Indonesia, starting at 1:30pm.
