Le Mayeur Museum, Sanur

2.9
#2 of 12 in Museums in Denpasar
Browse the collection of art at Le Mayeur Museum, the former home of Belgian painter Adrien-Jean Le Mayeur de Merpres. The collection includes both the artist's own works and his collection of Balinese cultural artifacts. Although Le Mayeur only intended to visit Bali for a few months in 1932, he stayed for good after falling in love with a young legong dancer who became his lifelong muse. Sadly, the sea air has damaged the poorly protected paintings, but even faded, they still display the artist's great skill. For Le Mayeur Museum and beyond, use our Denpasar trip maker site to get the most from your Denpasar vacation.

  • A history of love in Bali of the 1930s' the Belgian painter and the Balinese dancer, his muse and model, until his death. Her house is today tribute to his art and his love, on the beaches of Sanur in Bali. His beautiful paintings, but in very bad state, to see them better in the Pacific Museum in Nusa Dua.

  • Nice place.. great architecture n design.. rich of traditional culture n story.. 👍👍👍
  • Huge potential ruined by disinterested local authorities. Horrendously discoloured printed replicas of good, strong art. This place should be buzzing with tourists, have ORIGINALS on display and continuously restorated. Looks pretty much deserted. We had to search for someone to take our money for the tickets.
  • I enjoyed the museum when we visited in 2011, authentic, but might need better maintanence. Shows very well the way of living of the painter. I recommend to read the novel "Liebe und Tod auf Bali" from Vicky Baum, as some aspects of her book seem to coincide with aspects of his life.
  • Excelent meseum
  • Need a lot of improvement! Potential but poor managed :(

Where to stay in Denpasar
