The painting “Istriku” (1953) is one of Dullah’s work that shows an affinity for the beauty of the female figure. In addition to his strong concern for populist humanism and local values, Dullah was indeed a romantic painter who faithfully immortalised his ideals through beauty as well as the majesty of nature as is evident in his works.
