作品: 32 x 51.5 cm; 12 ¾ x 20 ¼ in.

This work is in good overall condition as viewed. 

There is a white media accretion at the background at the right quadrant of the work, but this is inherent to the artist's working method. 

There is a very small hole to the paper at the upper left corner, but this is covered by the frame. 

There is evidence of discoloration and very faint and negligible fox marks to the paper, but this is consistent with the age of the work. 

Framed, under glass.

The young girl in the present work is Willem Gerard Hofker's model Ni Dablig. On the 27th of January 1939, Hofker sketched Ni Dablig, who was standing in a statuesque manner with a basket on her head, along with artists Frida Holleman (1908- 1999) and Piet Rezelman (1887-1964). For Piet Rezelman’s rendition of Ni Dablig, see Venduehuis der Notarissen, 12 September 2018, Lot 134.


During this time, Willem Gerard Hofker and his wife Maria lived in Den Pasar. The present lot would have been executed at his studio in his house, which was named Rumah Tebuh.
