Basoeki Abdullah counts as one of the most celebrated and decorated contemporary artists of Indonesia. His ability to paint romantic and flattering portraits earned him a place as the palace painter for King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand, as well as the Sultan Bolkiah of Brunei Darrussalam.

Born in 1915 in Surukarta, Indonesia, he studied fine art painting at the Royal Academy of Visual Arts in Netherlands. Subsequently, he continued travelling and painting through Paris, Rome and many other European cities.

Although he was an acclaimed portraitist who painted over 5000 portraits of the acquaintances and guests of President Soekarno, Basoeki also did many paintings that were inspired by Javanese mythology and folklore. This painting, titled Spirit of the Dance, brings out the wild abandonment of the dancers, emphasized by an underlit orange glow that illuminates their fiery expressions.

巴蘇基·阿卜杜拉是印度尼西亞最著名又得獎無數得的藝術家。他的畫即浪漫又迷人也因此贏得了泰國國王普密蓬·阿杜德(Bhumibol Adulyadej)和文萊達魯薩蘭國的蘇丹博爾基亞(Sultan Bolkiah)為皇室成員畫作肖像畫。
