Hasim was born in 1921 in Indonesia and died in 1982. He is one of Indonesia’s celebrated artists, and is renowned for his figurative and landscape paintings of native Indonesia. In this particular oil on canvas artwork, Hasim paints a calming scenery of a paddy field where farmers are present to harvest the paddies early in the morning. On the top left corner, colours of a sunrise can be seen whereas the rest of the sky remains dim and quiet before the day approaches. It’s a scenery where many city folks are unable to appreciate in real life but are able to admire through this breathtaking piece.
