culture360.org [1] presents the fourth in a series of interviews with Directors and Head Curators of Private Museums as well as Art Advisors to discuss the phenomenon of private art museums in Asia.

Dr. Oei Hong Djien, founder of the  Oei Hong Djien Museum [2] in Indonesia,  has been collecting  modern and contemporary Indonesian art for more than 40 years.

 His massive collection, at the Oei Hong Djien Museum in Magelang, spans a hundred years highlighting Indonesian art progressing through the nation’s colonial and post colonial history, beginning with paintings by Raden Saleh (1807-1880). There is a significant work of art in almost every corner, on every wall of his home which spills into his museum where even the fascade is designed by Widayat (b.1919), one of Indonesia’s foremost modern artist.
