The Blanco Renaissance Museum in Ubud, Indonesia

Preparing for a future trip, my memories brought me back to my last visit to this beautiful art museum on the hilltop of Campuhan, Ubud. The Blanco Museum exhibits around 300 of his expressionist-romantic paintings, mainly featuring Balinese female forms. His painting studio, kept as it was before his death in 1999, is also open to the public. It was a treat for me to view his works and studio while imagining how nice it would be to have a painting studio in that beautiful, natural environment.
