Description

Understanding the social and cultural roots and roles of Balinese painting is central to knowledge of Bali's heritage and its place in the world. This project will link analysis of two major collections of paintings with other collections held outside of Bali (including The Forge Collection at the Australian Museum). The study will create a major digital repository.
