This painting is a 1980's copy of Spies painting Sawahlandschaft mit Gunung Agung (View across the sawahs to Gunung Agung) painted in 1937 and which sold at Christies Hong Kong for HK dollars 6.3 million in 2003 roughly 70,000 GBP (http://www.christies.com/lotfinder/Lot/walter-spies-germany-1895-1942-sawahlandschaft-mit-4087707-details.aspx). Copying a famous painting is not unusual in Balinese art and is ment to complement the original work but also show the skill of the new artist. The focus on light and shadow emphasises the very spiritual character of Balinese art.
