Owner description: This small museum at the north end of Sanur Beach evokes a time of innocence and beauty before the introduction of relatively recent laws banning "immodest dress." Even more impressive than the paintings by the Belgian artist of the young Balinese dancer he married and her friends is the small mansion in which the art and artifacts are housed: a lovely example of Balinese architecture decorated with finely carved and gilded wooden shutters.

“worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

House and paintings were great. Not sure how much longer the paintings will last in the conditions they are kept under.

“Great Art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Great location on the walkway at Sanur beach. Although it is marked on the maps, no-on seems to be promoting it as a destination. There is a great art and furniture collection by Le Mayeur and a piece of Bali artistic history. Unfortunately the location on the beach means that there is damage to many of the artworks

“A life unknown......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We'd read a little about this place form a guidebook, looked it up as it was about a mile from our hotel along the beach, and we were astounded at what we found. We spend a lot of time in galleries and are familiar with lots of North European artists, but Le Mayeur was completely new to us both.
Getting to know a little of his art was embellished by the fact that we did so in his home of many years, which his Balinese wife bequeathed to the nation whilst she was still living there. The freedom to walk unhindered in this intimate museum was incredible, the story of the Le Mayeurs, their meeting when she was a young girl and their lifelong relationship, was touching; it was a real privilege to visit and savour this place and the art.

“A Famous Belgium in Sanur”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

A walk on the beach in Sanur and visit the home-museum of the famous Belgium painter Adrien Jean Le Mayeur which was married with a beautiful Balinese and famous dancer Ni Pollok. she was also his model. When he died the house was inherited by Ni Pollok. After she died the Balinese government acquired it all - the house, the museum and its paintings.
