Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is quite a naive painting but as a document it is very important.

History of the Object
The silver crockery undoubtedly came from Batavia as did all the servants, the orchestra, etc. It all made a tremendous impression on the guests.

Function
Johannes Andreas Paravicini (1710-1771) was sent by the Governor General of the East Indies to Timor to show the power and the authority of the VOC. Seven years before, the VOC stronghold Koepang was besieged by an army consisting of Portugese and mestizos. They were defeated by the VOC with the help of locals. Paraviccini is depicted at the head of the banquet together with the reigning monarchs of Timor, Roti, Solor, Alor, Savu en Sumba. Underneath the painting all the persons are named and a description is given of all the ceremonies that took place.
