Gallery III

The third gallery, was built by the Affandi foundation in 1999, and was officially opened by Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono X in May 2000. It was built to fulfill Affandi’s last wish to have a sufficient storage to keep his art work and his collection. It is a two storey building, the second floor used as restoration room and the basement as storage. A tower was also built next to this gallery, from where the road in front of the museum, some of the museum’s part and also “Gajah Wong” river beside the complex could be seen. This third gallery displays the works of the members of Affandi’s family, like Maryati’s embroidery (the first wife of Affandi), Kartika’s paintings (the daughter of Maryati) and Rukmini’s paintings (the daughter of Affandi from his second wife).
