Abstract

Detail from Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook, Two Planets: Millet's The Gleaners and the Thai Farmers (plate ).He remembered the scene well. Three members of his revolutionary military unit had gathered around a table, inside a makeshift command headquarters. Ruminating on the events of the past few days and weeks, these men – friends of his, comrades – turned over what had been achieved, what had been lost, in this revolutionary struggle. Would the revolutionary forces push through to victory, or would the Dutch prevail? The artist would capture this heroic yet utterly ordinary moment in his painting Meeting in Tjikampek of 1964 (plate ). And for the figure on the right – half‐seated on the edge of the table, left leg partially extended – Seabad Sindudarsono Sudjojono alluded to the painting of Gustave Courbet: calling up the pose of the kneeling man on the right of Stonebreakers (1849–50).
