Le Mayeur Museum In Sanur

Le Mayeur Museum is a secret treasure to cherish located right on the main Sindhu beach of Sanur.  This memorial museum showcases the artworks and personal history of painter Adrien-Jean Le Mayeur de Merpres, a Brussels-born artist who dedicated his entire life to the two beautiful things; his love for Bali and women. He fell in love with a Legong dancer, Ni Pollok, who he later married and broadly featured in his oil paintings. The house consists of five beautiful rooms with the main building comprising the couple’s former living rooms, decorated with classical Balinese elements, sculpted stone walls and red terrazzo floor tiles etc.

Le Mayeur utilized thick and rather stiff brushes to create sharp yet fluent caresses, which were later improvised by Antonio Blanco, another influential painter in Bali. Le Mayeur passed away on May 31, 1958. The loving couple had no children and their well-crafted mansion is the museum today.

Museum Le Mayeur is easily found, located right on the beachfront in Sanur.
