Prince Raden Saleh - Aristocrat,
The only authorized contemporary art based on Raden Saleh's masterpieces.
Prince Raden Saleh
was born in 1811 into the noble Indonesian Regent family of the famous Kijai
Ngabehi Kertoboso Bustaman (1681-1759),
a legend in his own time
directly related to the
Mataram Kingdom and Sultanate,
just as his great-grandnephew Dr. Dr. George H. Hundeshagen.
Following the treacherous arrest of Prince Diponegoro by General de Kock, Prince
was enticed to move
to Europe, where he studied art under Cornelius Kruseman and Andreas Schelfhout.
Although he was the first Indonesian artist to paint in the Western style, the
fact that he expressed individuality and creativity in his work (as opposed to
the traditional approach which stressed the reproduction of established forms
and styles) showed the way for future Indonesian artists to express their own
ideas more freely.
Inspired by his great-granduncle's
masterpieces, Dr. Dr. Hundeshagen -
curator of his great-granduncle's
fame and works of art
internationally acclaimed and accomplished artist himself and rightful
heir to Prince Raden Saleh's legacy - has created a selection
of Raden Saleh's finest masterpieces in new, bold and modern
For private collectors, interior decorators or
Dr. Dr. Hundeshagen's works of art - just as his great-granduncle's timeless
master-pieces - are already part of the private collections of Her Majesty Queen
Elizabeth II of Great Britain, Her Majesty Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands, as
well as the government of the Republic of Indonesia.
