indonesianhistory:

Portrait of Raden Saleh donning Western garb by Friedrich Carl Albert Schreuel, c. 1840.
Raden Saleh followed the romanticism genre that was popular in Europe in mid-1800s. This made him considered to be a pioneer of modern Indonesian art by the Western world. Despite the European elements, he still expressed Javanese cultural roots in his paintings (see also: analysis for The Capture of Diponegoro).
He was also commissioned to paint Dutch East Indies governor generals Daendels (1838) and van den Bosch (1836).
Young Raden Saleh was first taught in Bogor by the Belgian artist A.J. Payen. Payen acknowledged the youth’s talent, and persuaded the colonial government of the Netherlands to send Raden Saleh to the Netherlands to study art. He arrived in Europe in 1829 and began to study under Cornelius Kruseman and Andries Schelfhout.
It was from Kruseman that Raden Saleh studied his skills in portraiture, and later was accepted at various European courts where he was assigned to do portraits. While in Europe, in 1836 Saleh became the first indigenous Indonesian to be initiated into Freemasonry. From 1839, he spent five years at the court of Ernst I, Grand Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, who became an important patron.
From Schelfhout, Raden Saleh furthered his skills as a landscape painter. Raden Saleh visited several European cities, as well as Algiers. In The Hague, a lion tamer allowed Raden Saleh to study his lion, and from that his most famous painting of animal fights was created, which subsequently brought fame to the artist. Many of his paintings were exhibited at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Several of his paintings were destroyed when the Colonial Dutch pavilion in Paris was burnt in 1931.

Air Terjun Benang Kelambu, Dusun Pemotoh, Desa Aik Berik, Kecamatan Batu Keliang Utara, Kabupaten Lombok Tengah, Nusa Tenggara Barat.
Air tersebut berada di bagian atas hulu dari Air Terjun Benang Stokel. Air terjun ini keluar dari sela-sela pohon gambung yang rindang dengan enam deret titik air tercurah dari atas bukit mirip dengan kelambu/ tirai. Karena itulah air terjun ini disebut Benang Kelambu. Konon menurut kepercayaan masyarakat setempat, setiap kali mandi di tempat ini akan membuat orang keliatan satu tahun lebih muda.
