Bartele Gallery

Harper's Bazaar Art (Indonesia) - - Exhibition Highlight - Ger­ard van Keulen

Fas­ci­na­tion to­ward an­tique maps has led to the for­ma­tion of Bartele Gallery in 2009. Lo­cated in the hip Ke­mang area, South Jakarta, the gallery pro­vides a home to nu­mer­ous rare maps, such as the Taprobana, a mid-16th cen­tury black and white cop­per en­grav­ing of Su­mat­era Is­land with draw­ings made by Ger­man car­tog­ra­pher, Se­bas­tian Mün­ster. Dr. David Parry, a soil sci­en­tist and au­thor of The Car­tog­ra­phy of the East In­dian Is­lands, is the es­teemed cu­ra­tor for Bartele Gallery whose to­po­graphic en­deav­ours span an il­lus­tri­ous 25 years in In­done­sia. But not only maps, Bartele also dis­plays a won­der­ful col­lec­tion of an­tiques, prints, old books, and tribal art, with some art­work dat­ing 500 years ago. The gallery opens its sec­ond store in Lang­weer Fries­land, Nether­lands in 2014, also cov­er­ing a broad range of his­tor­i­cal maps and prints with fo­cus par­tic­u­lar on Fries­land.
