A Painting of a Golden-Hearted Lady



The Ragunan Zoo (Jakarta, Indonesia) has the world’s largest conservation center of primates, the Schmutzer Primate Center. Schmutzer name taken from the name of the late Mrs. Pauline Antoinette Schmutzer-Versteegh (1924-1998), a Netherlands-blooded painter and animal lover who had golden heart and loved Indonesia. She was pleased to donate all her estate to the establishment of this new primate center.

Previously, she also had donated several times her wealth for the construction of various cages at Ragunan Zoo, such as cages of lions, tigers, bears, etc. Thanks to her  generosity, Jakarta has the largest primate center in the world with ​​13 hectares area.

Mrs Schmutzer really was a very nice lady, I met her in 1997 when I was a member of Sahabat Satwa in Jakarta. We always had a good relation to her and she helped us so much in our projects.
