The fertile red-brown earth of Java is carved into hillside terraces for non-irrigated crops. These colors of the land are bright with the stylized patterns fo plants, trees, and people at work. The naive rendering with deep perspective has a decorative and rhythmic character.

Some early cubist elements are evident in the background. A mountainous setting with trees and blue sky towers over a cluster of stylized figures (lower right) with parasols.

  Title : Living In Harmony
  Artist : Soebroto
  Media : Oil on canvas
  Size : 104 x 138 cm
  Year : 1981
The bright colors and girl patern are like a stained glass window or tile mosaic. People of different castes live together in harmony. a high priest and his attendant (left of center) meet some well-dressed villages (right of center) in front of an upper class house. Peasant families with produce are at the sides. The quota (bottom) is from the Hindu Bhagavadgita (Song of the Lord), a part of the Mahabharata epic. Kresna, incarnation of Wisnu (God of life and Preservation), advises the hero Arjuna who is reluctant to fight his own relatives: I Brought forth the four great divisions of men, according to their qualities and rituals. Although I Made all of this, know that I never act at all.

  Title : Miss Sasih
  Artist : Dullah
  Media : Oil on canvas
  Size : 100 x 70 cm
  Year : 1977
This realistic portait is of an ideal Balinese maiden. Her name is the Sanskrit and Balinese word for "moon", which thus equates feminine beauty with the perfection of the full moon. The young woman is dressed in a kain songket (brocade) hip-cloth and lacey kebaya (long-sleeved blouse). She is picking up a frangipani flower, thus providing a setting that takes this painting beyond mere portraiture. At the top a pavilion, tree trunk, and shrine are visible.
