Le Mayeur Museum, Sanur

3.0
#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.

  • If you are Belgian and want you grow a little appointment in this small museum located near the jetties for Bintang, Le Mayeur lived there, buildings that could be better maintained, the garden is pleasant we cross not many people and you will not or little explanation. the works are beautiful but not always highlighted

  • If you go through Sanur, take the time to visit which was the residence of this remarkable painter, whose paintings are a little thinking about Heroised. Some paintings are magnificent, but unfortunately very poorly lit and, for many of them, damaged. It is a pity that the treasures that can be found here are not better safeguarded.

  • Best place for visit paint of famous artist Belgian who live in Bali. Its his ex-home. U can see beautiful traditional house of Balinese at there. In front of Sanur Beach, u can ask people about this place.
  • The museum has very nice pieces of art, the building is so beautiful. But it is a shame that everything is in such bad state. Everything is dirty and only the garden show some maintenance. The light is horrible and a lack of curatorial advice makes the experience rather disappointing.
  • Nice place.. great architecture n design.. rich of traditional culture n story.. 👍👍👍
  • antique museum... good place..
  • 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.
