Moving from pavilion to pavilion we were able to view almost the entire range of Balinese painting from the early 20th century to the present day. The early traditionalists were there, the 20s and 30s Europeans, the young Penestenan painters, right through, plus the wonderful kris collection of the founder. Its an amazing collection.

Arie Smit is a born Dutch painter (later choose to have an Indonesian citizenship) and has his own pavilion in this museum. His painting style does not give me any feeling at all.

This is relatively small attractive museum spread over several interesting buildings in a garden. It has both historical and contemporary art, including an exhibit by a Dutch born artist that lived in Bali most of his life. Check out the photographs from 1930s Bali, depicting rich cultural rituals.

Neka is set in beautiful grounds, so as well as meandering amongst thousands of excellent artworks, you can take a breather under the shade of a mango tree.

I first visited this gallery in 1988. It's a free attraction housing important works from Balinese artists. It's a great way to acquaint yourself with local art and techniques especially if you want to buy some of the many items available from galleries all over the island
