Sarong batik pasisir, woman’s skirt cloth, North Coast of Java, early to mid-20th century, hand-drawn batik on imported cotton, natural and aniline dyes.
The composition, as was traditional in this area, drew inspiration from Dutch botanical illustrations. They strange hybrid tulips on the body of the cloth are quintessentially Dutch, and interestingly, are drawn on a traditional Javanese background pattern called geringsing, which is associated with fish scales, and was reputed to have the power to ward off illness during epidemics. At left, an early 20th centur photograph of a Balinese woman in a skirtcloth of similar style. North Coast batiks were traded extensively throughout Java, Bali and Sumatra. (MT)

A scene from the Mahabharata. The Pandawa clan at left, are led by Krishna, with Bima at the far left, in his signature black-and-white checked cloth. The Korawa clan at right. This configuration reflects the way one would see and actual performance of wayang kulit in Java and Bali, where the puppetmaster operates the Pandawa (“good guys”) with his right arm, and the Korawa (“bad guys”) with the left.

Sarong Batik, skirt cloths, made on the North Coast of Java for the Sumatran market, mid-20th century, hand-drawn batik on imported cotton, sewn into a tube form, natural and aniline dyes. The tumpal (isosceles triangle motifs) on the kepala (“head”) of these batiks have a strong graphic impact. The overall composition of these cloths was highly influenced by sembagi Indian trade textiles. The illustration at left is a detail of a political cartoon from the early 20th century, representing the persecution of the common Javanese woman under Dutch colonial policies (MT)

Batik on cotton. This sarong was part of a museum de-accession. Very good condition. 71″ x 40″ . This batik was acquired as a result of a de-accession from the Montclair Art Museum of New Jersey. This textile still has the exhibition cloth hanging tabs hand-sewn on the backside. The only exhibition of Javanese batiks at that museum took place during the year 1932, under the title “Javanese Batiks: collection of Paul E Vernon”. Paul Vernon exhibited collection textiles – perhaps the same ones – at one other museum: during 1928 they had an exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum similarly titled “Javanese Batiks: Paul E. Vernon Collection”. The Paul E.Vernon family did not donate their entire collection to the Montclair Art Museum: the MET in 1958 has on file that they acquired “Mrs. Paul E. Vernon: 13 batiks, Javanese, xix century”, presumably after her husbands death. Note that items 2591, 2592 and 2595 of this gallery have the same purchase history. (YAT)
