Another post-war Solo Batik Tulis from the Tjoa family, the founder of the 3 Negeri style, signed: Tjoa Siang Hing. I will let the picture speak for itself. This particular shade of purple is rarely seen in this variety of batik tulis. Tjoa Siang Hing did not make as many purple as Tjoa Siang Swie and Gwan. And his purple came out very differently, as you can see here. Colours in Batik Tulis very much relies on geographical and atmospheric condition at the time of dye dipping and mixing. PH balance of the water at the time, level of pollution in the air or on the soil, etc. Typical of the Tjoa Family batik after the war, it is filled with movements and colours, what they lack in details in comparison to their predecessor they made up in vibrancy. The Tjoa Siang generation works around the 1960s-1970s. CONDITION: small pin holes indicated by white stickers.
