Item description for Charles Sayers: Pioneer of Art in the Dutch Indies by Koos Van Brakel...

The painters active in the first half of the 20th century in the Dutch Indies were a motley crew. The only thing they had in common was that they had all been attracted by the myth of the island-paradise. As was to be expected, the output of this heterogeneous group of professionals, amateurs and "tourists" proved variable. However, some in this group stood out: Roland Strasser, Isaac Israels, Max Fleisher, Walter Spies, and Charles Sayers.

The works of these painters managed to break with the conservatism that was common in the arts of the Dutch Indies at that time. A good example of this is the work of Charles Sayers (1901-1943). His work evolved from an initially realist manner to a moderate form of expressionism. The viewpoint underlying certain of his works suggests a photographic eye. The subjects are often dramatic, emotional and dynamic, all conveyed through a very bright palette. The works of Charles Sayers today are very collectable.

This book documents Charles Sayers' life and shows the broad scope of his work -- murals, drawings, oils -- and subjects varying from still life to portraits to landscapes and rituals. Included is a list of all known works.
