Balinese Paintings

Balinese Paintings
Walter Spies, (1895-1942), an artist himself, came to Bali in the Thirties at the suggestion of the royal family in Ubud. He told the local artists that they should paint scenes of daily life, the markets, planting rice, harvesting, temple festivals, dance performances, and so on. This particular artist, resident in Ubud, and a disciple of the Western artists, who lived in Ubud in the Thirties, has followed that advice in his own individual style.
