Reverse Glass Painting from Indonesia
Indonesian Reverse Glass Painting depicting scenes from the Mahabharata. The painting appears to be an example of Balinese glass painting, with Chinese, Arabic and wayang/shadow puppet influences, and very likely dates from the very early part of the 20th century. Balinese glass painting tradition was established in Java in the 19th century and in Bali in the early 1920s. There were several glass painting centers in Balinese villages. The painting is signed. Measurements: H 16 1/2" x 21" sight measurements, with frame 21" x 26". Provenance: Private Collection.
