LEMBONGAN TROPICAL ISLAND PARADISE
Nusa Lembongan (Nusa = Island) is one of three neighbouring islands of Bali, approximately 12 miles from south east Bali and 20 miles from Lombok. The other two (2) islands are Nusa Penida being the bigger and Nusa Ceningan being the smaller.
Nusa Lembongan is a pristine tropical island, its highest point is 50 meters above sea level. Lembongan has an average rainfall of approximately 1000 mm per year. Little temperature variation from 30 degrees Celsius occurs between the only two seasons this island experiences being the wet and the dry. The wet season is from December to February and the dry is from March to November. As it has only three months of rainfall, this island is dry for the remainder of the year. Little cultivation occurs, as almost 2/3 of the island is infertile. Seeding is normally done on the wet season and only corn, cassava and peanuts are farmed. Also found on the island are cashew nuts, mangoes and coconut. Fresh water is limited and most of the supply is derived from wells up to 60 meters deep. Nusa Lembongan is located on the Wallace line. Sir Alfred Wallace, a historic naturalist who conducted extensive studies of this area, determined the Wallace line. The Wallace line is still recognised as a biological division between Asia and Australia/Pacific. Many species of bird, animal and flora indigenous to Australia are not found West of this line, as the flora and fauna on the west ‘Asian’ side are not found to the east of this line. The ocean currents that funnel their way between these islands are rich in macrobiotic life that support abundant coral and fish life in shallow waters surrounding these islands.

Bali painting was subject to outside influences, particularly form Western painting, during the late 1920s in Ubud, Gianyar, Bali. While some foreign influences on traditional painting already were being used since the late 19th century, major changes occured due to the fluence of Walter Spies (German, 1895-1942), who emphasized light, shadow, depth & perspective in his works. Rudolf Bonnet (Dutch, 1895-1978), on the other hand, focused on anatomy & portraiture. Both of them came to Bali in the late 1920s and built their studios in Ubud with the assistance of the local prince Cokorda Gede Agung Sukawati (1910-1978), a patron of Balinese art. At the time, Ubud was not known as a centre for the visual arts, although there was a style of wayang / puppet painting.
It was natural for Bali artist to notice the talents of Spies and Bonnet, who in turn urged some of the local Bali painters to use broader themes and encouraged them to paint with more freedom. While very few Balinese artists were directly tauht these new aesthetic concepts, other Bali artists simply copied what they saw and like which was a tradition in the Bali culture. Most of them turned to themes already familiar to them in traditional astrological charts and earthquake almanacs, using the Bali agricultural scenes as ideas for the new genre style of painting. These were compositions free of religious or ceremonial value.
