Known as ‘the revolutionary painter’ in Indonesia, Dullah onceled a group of young artists to depict live battle scenes during the war for Indonesian independence against the Dutch from 1945 to 1949. The artist studied under S. Sudjojono, and was also an official artist for Indonesian President Soekarno.

A master of realist portraits, Dullah is respected for painting his subjects in all their nuances of suffering and happiness, bringing out the subtlety of emotions in the expressions of the faces. In this painting titled Brother and Sister, Dullah convincingly conveyed the sense of intimacy in this pair of siblings, deliberately keeping to a uniform palette so that their relationship becomes the focus of the painting.
