PAINTING OF BALI
 
In classical painting, this system had a narrative function. The patterns were those of the wayang puppet show and the story that of the Ramayana or Mahabharata epics. One identified a hero by the shape of his eyes, his costume and other patterned elements. Little has changed today. Modern "village" artists may use a broader range of graphic patterns than their predecessors- more physical postures, a more varied range of faces or leavesbut the phenomenon of "patterning" itself is still there, sometimes with a strange twist. Instead of simply following the modgls of the wayang puppet show, modern painters tend to derive their patterns from Walter Spies' landscapes or Rudolf Bonnet's portraits.

Some of Balinese paintings are masterpieces: Where do you look for Balinese painting such as previously depicted: first in the museums. The, museum with the best collection of Balinese paint ing is the Puri Lukisan in the center of Ubud. Yott ! may also go to the Arma Museum in nearby' Pliatan, which has a reputed collection of Balinesd paintings from the thirties. The other museums are Neka in Campuhan/Ubud and Rudana in Mas, featuring works by modern Indonesian and foreign painters who have lived and produced in Bali.

After the Second World War academictrained artists started appearing on the Balinese scene. They initiated an altogether different style based on the principles of modern art and several of them are now' among the star of national Indonesian art. The initiator of modern art in Bali Nyoman Tusan ( born in 1933), who was educated at the Bandung Institute of Technology (19531959).
