Oil on canvas painting of a marketplace in a Sumatran landscape, unframed, 15 3/4" by 21 1/2", signed at lower right by Indonesian impressionist artist MUSLIM SALEH (1927-). This signature was difficult to decipher but a little research on the net established the identity of the artist. He was born in West Sumatra and learned from Japanese painters during the World War II occupation years. Subsequently he participated in the Indonesian Revolution. In the early 1950's the artist worked for the United States Information Agency as an illustrator, and his career in art advanced, with prime minister Adam Malik acquiring his work. A very few paintings by the artist have appeared at auction. This piece needs restoration. It is quite dirty, there is an L shaped tear at left, a few areas of flaked paint, especially at the edges from old frame abrasion, and possible overpainting. Thus cleaned and restored, it will make for a most attractive work. Note the sheer number of figures, some draped, at lower right, and the other details of the landscape, including the sharp-peaked structure at far left, apparently typical of this region of Indonesia.
