Profiles of islands drawn on the journey from Ceylon to Batavia present a transfixing landscape showered with what appear to be remnants of another time and place. Inspired by Pieter de Bevere 1757 drawing ‘Profielen van eilanden getekend op de reis van Ceylon naar Batavia’, Rijksmuseum, Netherlands, Amsterdam.
