Le Mayeur Museum

Le Mayeur Museum is a memorial museum showcasing the artworks and personal history of painter Adrien-Jean Le Mayeur de Merpres a Brussels-born artist. This museum easily found, located right on the beachfront in Sanur. The compound features of structures in Balinese architecture that houses well over eighty artworks, categorised into five different collections based on the mediums that Le Mayeur used, such as hardboard, plywood, canvas and paper.

Most of the paintings in his collection feature bare-breasted women, and not all were the results of inspiration in Bali, as he had travelled the world prior to calling the island his home. Most of his world travels included Europe, Africa, India, Italy and France. Some of his work feature subjects inspired by his travels he painted during the 1920s. Le Mayeur arrived in Bali in 1932 in his early 50s. It was supposed to be part of his travels until he met his muse and future wife. They married after three years of their first meeting and Le Mayeur built the house on the shoreline when Sanur was a mere quiet fishing village. One of the structures in the gardens is a meeting pavilion where Le Mayeur used to receive his guests and potential buyers of his art pieces.
