Le Mayeur Museum is a memorial museum mainly housing the artworks and personal history of painter Adrien-Jean Le Mayeur de Merpres (February 9, 1880 – May 31, 1958) – a Brussels-born artist who was impressed by the shores of Sanur and dedicated his entire life there to the two things he loved the most: the arts and women. Before deciding to spend his life in Bali, Le Mayeur had already travelled around the world. Sacrificing his travels to pursue his love of arts, he found himself enamoured of the exotic scent of frangipani and a certain bare-breasted Legong dancer, his wife and muse, Ni Pollok.
After Le Mayeur found ‘home’ in the island and Ni Pollok, who soon became the muse of his paintings and the rest of his life, the artist created a range of artworks in his impressionistic 'dob' style of painting. His technique was considered unorthodox, albeit in a brilliant way. Le Mayeur utilized thick and rather stiff brushes to create sharp yet fluent caresses, which were later elaborated on by Antonio Blanco, another influential painter in Bali. Le Mayeur passed away on May 31, 1958. The loving couple left no children but the well-crafted mansion that is the museum today, and its legacy was bequeathed to the Indonesian government. The museum exemplifies the priceless heritage of an artist and a nation. The main building features the former living quarters of the couple, with classical Balinese elements, sculpted stone walls and red terrazzo floor tiles. Carved wood dominates the furnishings, and window sills feature motifs inspired by wayang shadow puppet characters. There are five rooms that serve as silent witnesses to the lives of Le Mayeur and Ni Pollok. Visitors may imagine the similar love story brought again to life through inanimate objects, similar to the retro-styled storytelling of the film Titanic. Walkthroughs include the artist’s studio, reading room and study, and the bedroom as well as Ni Pollok’s vanity corner and bathroom.
Good to Know about Le Mayeur Museum
Museum Le Mayeur is easily found, located right on the beachfront in Sanur. The compound features 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.
Sanur Beach, Bali's earliest beach resort, features a relaxed coastal ambiance. Located on the eastern side of the island's isthmus, it is the opposite of Kuta, both in characteristics and nuance. The former fishing village maintains most of its charm and continues to attract repeat visitors, mostly from Europe. Among Bali’s first hotels and beachfront retreats, together with an eclectic mix of restaurants, shops and bars and an assortment of innovative and modern entertainment venues share the Sanur Beach coastline. Known for its laidback atmosphere, Sanur Beach maintains its wealth in arts and culture, making it an ideal destination to enjoy the best of both eras, classic and contemporary.
Sanur Beach is one of the first resort areas in Bali to see the influx of tourism which Bali has experienced over the past half century. Despite this, it remains rich in history and retains much of its laidback ambience from its earlier days, attracting a different type of crowd compared to the livelier scenes you will find in Kuta and Legian. Sanur features several small connected beaches that are all quiet, with a pleasant paved path where locals and expats enjoy morning jogs against the rising sun. The coastline is shared by some of the island’s earliest pioneering hotels and boutique resorts. Sites to see in Sanur include its collection of historical landmarks, such as the Le Mayeur Museum located right beside the beach art market, and the ancient and mysterious Blanjong inscription, well hidden behind the modern traffic and lines of restaurants and cafes.
Sindu Market, often spelled 'Sindhu' and referred to locally as ‘Pasar Tradisional Desa Sanur’, is the main fresh market within the whole Sanur village area, located near the northern end of Sanur’s Jalan Danau Tamblingan road. Also referred to locally as ‘Pasar Sindu’ for short, the market is better known among regular visitors as a night market, where you can discover a bustling street food vendor scene that occupies most of its front parking space after sundown. Before sunrise, however, the Sindu Market is already very much alive, particularly within the main area sheltered under its large warehouse-like structure. Although it carries ‘traditional’ in its name, the market is clean and modernized, with around 150 stands along white ceramic tiled lanes. Each of these are designated to different sellers, offering everything from fresh fruits, vegetables and spices, to flowers and young coconut leaves for daily Hindu Balinese offerings
Surrounding this central row of stalls are individual kiosks, offering kitchen utensils and household tools, batiks and other traditional textiles, as well as several warungs (small food stalls) selling nasi campur mixed rice, refreshments and cold drinks. You can be sure to enjoy cheap, local prices here. Despite the modern layout of the Sindu Market, the traditional aspect remains in the hard bargaining, which you can practice here yourself. These main fresh stalls usually become quiet after 08:00, while some of the surrounding kiosks stay open throughout the day. Then, in the afternoon, the parking space readies for transformation, as the market becomes what visitors refer to as the Sanur Night Market (aka Sindu Night Market) or ‘Pasar Malam Sindu’. By 18:00, local food stalls and carts roll in, cook and grill up local delights, ranging from lamb satays, bakso meatball soup to nasi goreng fried rice – all at budget prices
