                      Description(s)

                      This book follows the line in the change of patronage under which Balinese artists traditionally worked. The distance in shape, function, and aesthetics between traditional Balinese and Western art, that existed around 1900, was reduced under the influence of colonial rule and the arrival of many foreigners. Western artists travelled to Bali and often settled there, which initiated a mutual dynamic in visual art. However, the constantly changing social and political circumstances did not play a very significant role. The book follows all these developments from the beginning of the 20th century until the integration of Balinese culture in the wider global tendencies of the 1990s.
