Auke Sonnega : Artist of The Enchanting Tropics, Didier Hamel, Hexart Publishing, p. 145, colourplate 227

Literature:

“…Bali is not like the other islands…for the landscape is of almost exaggerated freshness and greenery…, is a most attractive baroque pattern, frequently of exuberant aspect… The picture is completed by the well-proportioned shapes of the Balinese: the Balinese woman, often so graceful, waling with typical balanced movements.” Auke Cornelis Sonnega cited in A Facet of the Cosmic Pattern, Zeist, Holland, December 1959, p. 10



Dutch artist Auke Sonnega first arrived in Bali in 1937, the flamboyant landscape and enchanting eastern culture enthralled him. He would later capture the sensuous tropical onto canvas, among all includes intimate views of Balinese women and ritual festivals.



Sensual Balinese Lady features a frontal profile of a Balinese lady with flowers tucked into her ear. The angular shape of her headdress, and its bright tropical frangipani flowers decoration juxtaposed against the jet black soulful eyes, offering an insight to Sonnega’s sensibilities to elude the lady’s graciousness and purity. Bali was so close to Sonnega’s heart for which, he failed to salvage his artistic equilibrium after leaving for Holland in 1958. The present lot painted shortly before his return to Holland, is an epitome to his sojourn in this tropical utopia.



“...巴厘岛不像其他岛屿......因为景观几乎是無法想像的新鲜和翠綠......,幾乎像巴洛克式图案,富有旺盛的靈魂......巴厘岛由各種峇里式的元素完成,如:巴厘岛妇女,往往是如此优雅,与典型,交叉著平衡的動作结合。”奧庫.蘇恩赫,《宇宙模式的一个方面》,Zeist,荷兰,1959年12月,第10頁


荷兰籍艺术家奧庫.蘇恩赫于1937年首次抵达巴厘岛,华丽的风景和迷人的东方文化吸引了他。之後他感性地将热带风情捕捉到画布上,其中包括巴厘岛妇女和节日仪式的亲密景色。



《女子》是巴厘岛妇女的正面轮廓,雞蛋花花朵塞在耳朵後,她的头饰的棱角分明,鲜艳的花朵与她黑色深情的眼睛并列,敏感性地提供了一个洞察女士的和蔼和纯洁的洞察力。巴厘岛在蘇恩赫的心中佔據重要的位置,1958年离开荷兰后,他失去了他藝術靈感的泉源。這件作品是,他返回荷兰之前不久画的遺作,是他在热带乌托邦孜孜不倦逗留時的重要缩影。
