The painting "Return from Fishing", also known as "Fish Catching", depicts modest family life in Indonesia, an increasingly rare scene in modern life. We see a father with two happy children going fishing in the river. Far in the distance, people are busy with their catches. Hendra also presents a wasted land. Dried trees build an air of desolation. This painting participated in a group exhibition called, "Pelukis Rakyat" in 1955, that highlighted Hendra's talent for seizing daily life using a distinctive aesthetic approach.
