This book was published in 1989 to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the establishment of Bank Negara Malaysia. It documents, for the first time, the Bank's collection of art, which has its modest beginning in 1962.
It presents a wide variety of works by Malaysian artists, spanning six categories, namely Abstract, Nature, Figurative, Street Scenes, Architecture, and Batik and Prints. These categories reflect not only the Bank's wide ranging choice of paintings, but also the artists' versatility in expression, from one subject matter to the other, and from one media to another.
Indeed, Puspaseni traces the maturity and development of Malaysian artists over the years.
Puspaseni was published for Bank Negara Malaysia's corporate gift. It is not available for sale.
