BALI: ISLE OF INSPIRATION

The island of Bali has long been a rich source of inspiration to artists, writers, musicians and dancers from around the world. A province of Indonesia located between the islands of Java and Lombok, Bali has been celebrated by locals and visitors alike for its natural beauty as well as its unique cultural heritage and artistic traditions. Throughout the 20th century, artists travelled to Bali and captured its people and landscapes in the form of paintings and sketches, securing an important role for the island as an iconic subject in the art history of the region.
