Why this is a
Masterpiece

The depiction of a sea scene is typical of the Sanur group of painters. The principal quality of the painting rests in the play of colour between the blue nuances of the waves and the white colour spots made by the sail of the boat.

History of the Object
I Ketut Regig worked in Sanur. Sanur is a beach resort located a few miles south of Denpasar. The development of modern Balinese painting in Sanur was stimulated by the Neuhaus brothers. They befriended a local priest and painter, Ida Bagus Nyoman Rai Griya, and encouraged him to produce drawings for their shop. Their success in selling these drawings, attracted locals to learn and produce paintings for the Neuhaus brothers. Early Sanur paintings featured mostly erotic scenes and sea and land animal kingdoms. The works are covered by highly stylized large and coarse design with lack of perspective, and adored with pastel colors. Large sea creatures showed in perfect harmony with humans adorned with large gigantic sea foliage and lines suggesting ocean waves. The lack of details may be attributed to fast production to keep up with the demand or to produce income quickly, while the pastel colors and erotic darwings were a reflection of the tourist preference at the time.
