                    A personal chronicle on the originally Dutch painter Arie Smit (1916), about his life and – in particular – about his 60 year long career on Bali.

From his youth in Zaandam and Rotterdam, his departure to former Dutch-Indies and his work for the Topografische Dienst in Batavia and for several publishers on Java.
