National Gallery Singapore is presenting an exhibition entitled Between Worlds: Raden Saleh and Juan Luna from November 16. Between Worlds features the works of Indonesian artist Raden Saleh (c.1811–1880) and Filipino artist Juan Luna (1857–1899), two eminent painters from South-east Asia who were acclaimed in Europe. This will be the first major survey to bring their works together, drawing from major collections around the world.
The exhibition explores how Raden Saleh and Juan Luna developed as artists working in two diverse cultures and societies -- and how their European experiences shaped the art history of this region.
Between Worlds is part of the showcase Century of Light, which features two exciting exhibitions of art from the 19th century, an era of innovation and change. Together with Colours of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d'Orsay, this exhibition shows the range of painting styles and art movements that emerged in Europe during the 19th century and played a significant role in the development of art in South-east Asia and around the world.
Entry to the exhibition costs $15 for Singaporeans and Permanent Residents, and $25 for non-Singaporeans. Concessions rates are also available at $10 and $20 respectively.
