Our topic this day were the Native painted during Indonesia Independence War 1945-1948. Many popular and expensive paintings during the Independence war , but the native painting for picture postcard illustration not many found this day.
In 1990 I have found a collection of native painting about the situation at Betawi (Batavia-Jakarta) by the Painter LEX issue by Dutch Nica Federal state organization F.I.W.I (Federatie van ex-illegal workers in Indie) , this organization never report before. Beside the Picture postcard printed by the bigger printing office Kolff , I also found a promotional of special FIWI cover , and inside there were 10 picture postcard design native Betawi paintings , but I only found four picture postcard.
The Betawi painting picture postcard illustration will put in this blog :
1. FIWI promotional cover with the mission of FIWI “in het grondsch verzet tegen de japanesche bezetting van Nedrl.Indie ” in ground action against the Japanese occupation i Indonesia (Hindia Belanda). with the painting illustration native farmer.
2.Picture postcard painting illustration mother and child bath in Ciliwung river Jakarta.
3. Picture postcard painting illustration Becak transportation.
4.Picture postcard painting illustration cutting hair under the tree,
5. Picture postcard painting illustration walking in the rain with banana leaves protections.
I hope the collector have the other six Picture postcard issued by FIWI to show us via comment.
