Here you go to the history making of UBUD culture. Old painting by old balinese masters depicting the life style of ubudians and the religious hirory of bali. You find pictures of furst europianns who created part of the recent culture of ubud by mixing with, teaching art and loving people of ubud.

Really cool museum for a quick 1-2 hour view. That's about my limit for a museum, anyway.

While billed as modern art, its not what I would normally think of, i.e., at no point did I think to myself "gee, I could do that myself". Its kind of modern interpretations of Balinese traditional art, with a standout for me Ida Bagus Made. The richness of the colors wasn't something you commonly see...the paint used in many paintings is (apparently) a concotion of earth, bone, and other ingredients.

The grounds were relatively compact, and beautiful. Any landscape architects in particular would really appreciate them.

Only suggestion would be to spruce up the gift should....poss. a big revenue source for museum, as I was looking to take a moment of the art for our own home.

The art here makes you realise why Ubud is so famous worldwide for its art. The pictures here tell a story really well and you get sucked into all the intricate designs within them. Definitely worth a visit.

Unub is the heart of Balinese art. A joint effort by the Ubud princely family and a Dutch artist over was made to preserve and promote traditional art. Over a few decades, despite war, occupation, revolution, deposition, and at least one apathetic philistine in a position to throw a spanner in the works, Puri Lukisan--the Palace of Painting--was created to celebrate the incredible traditional arts of Bali.

A wide range of painting techniques is employed, from painting on paper and canvas to painting on cloth, and sculpture. Many of the works are "busy" in the sense that Dutch and Italian cityscapes are busy: the painting are packed full of incredible detail so the longer you look at one the more you see. Wonderful stuff, and a tribute to both the visionary and persistent men who created the museum, and the artists whose works are displayed in the galleries. I am attaching a few examples of the art here.

Side notes; (1) through June 28, there is a special exhibit of the works of the Keliki miniaturists. Miniaturists suggests postcard sized paintings, but here really refers to the small scale of the paintings, the better to pack more details in. Keliki is a small village near Ubud with a very high percentage of local artists: about 20% of the villagers are artists with the techniques being handed down from father to son. (2) for folks staying in the southern beach resorts, note that the convenient Nura Nura bus system does run busses up to Ubud, for 70 K each way. I've been on that road half a dozen times, and the run can take two hours due to traffic. An air-conditioned small bus is a great way to get up to Ubud, even if the promised wifi doesn't work, and the bus's second stop is right at this museum.
