This large volume is a retrospective of one of Indonesia's most renowned painters, Abdul Aziz (1928-2002). The idea for this book was conceived by the late artist's wife and so it is also a tribute to Abdul Aziz, the man. In the first half of the book, memories, stories and anecdotes from family and friends are used to reconstruct his early years and mark milestones in his life. Recollections are generously interspersed by sketches, photographs and mementoes. The second part of the book focuses on his ?uvre. An essay by art historian Astri Wright illuminating on the context and different periods of the art of Abdul Aziz introduces some of the artist's sketches and full-page colour plates of his paintings.
