Why this is a
Masterpiece

Exceptional batik and zn important historical document relating to an episode of medical treatment in the East Indies.

History of the Object
In 1912, Dr. Denis G. Mulder started his medical practice in Garoet. He specialized in total light therapy (ultra-violet treatment). To pursue his goal for recognition, he built the recuperation and recreational retreat "Sanatorium Garoet" at Ngamplang about four km. from Garoet. The building started in 1913 and was opened for business in 1915 with Dr. Mulder as physician/director and eight European nurses. When Dr. Mulder left (he was appointed as a Government physician) in 1920 for Bandoeng the building was sold to the Dutch East Indies Hotel Corp. It was subsequently named Hotel Ngamplang.
