Quirky, enigmatic and uniquely beautiful, the art and furnishings of Central and East Java’s villages and palaces are little known to the art historians, museum curators and collectors of the world. The main distinguishing features of this folk art are revealed in this book—bright, bold colours ; naïve forms and compositions ; flattened perspectives ; anonymous origins ; functionality ; humour and social commentary. Javanese folk art is the product of a complex and ancient culture renowned for its ability to pick and choose from the outside world while creating completely original, and undeniably, Javanese styles.
