Biography   Maurits Ernest Hugo Kerkhoff


In 1858 the artist and graphic designer van den Kerkhoff left Holland to become a planter in Java and settled in Pasuruan, as an administrator of the 'Kanawangi' estate. He still found time to paint and wrote extensively about his Javanese work to the former director of the colonial museum in Haarlem. The majority of his Javanese paintings, which concentrate on the east Javanese scenery around Malang (like the present work, which depicts the highest mountain on Java and an active volcano), are now in the collection of the Tropenmuseum, Amsterdam. For more on the artist in Java, see M.-O. Scalliet in Indi Omlijst, Wijk en Aalburg, 1999, pp.80-84.
