About Le Mayeur Museum

Dedicated to preserving the life and works of the wonderful painter, Adrien-Jean Le Mayeur de Merpres, the Le Mayeur Museum is a memorial of art and history located in Sanur, Bali. Born in 1880, Le Mayeur had a very unorthodox style and brilliant technique in his art. The museum is the very house where the artist and his beloved wife, Ni Pollok, lived. Pollok dedicated the house to him after the artist's death in 1958. Classic Balinese architecture like the sculpted stone walls and red terrazzo floor tiles silently reflect the love Le Mayeur had for his art.
