(8/31/2001)

A special auction at Christie's in Singapore, the first ever dedicated exclusively to Balinese Modernist paintings will be held on September 29, 2001. An exceptional single-owner collection that includes 100 works collected by renowned anthropologists Gregory Bateson and Margaret Mead during their period of fieldwork in Bali form 1936-1938, the paintings represent works by some of Bali's most important artists of the last century.

The collection estimated to bring some 1.5 million Singapore Dollar has been collected over a period of 15 years by Dutch collector Mr. Leo Hacks.

Ms. Ruoh-Ling Keong, a specialist in Southeast Asian Pictures Department at Christie's Singapore, said: "We are very privileged to have been entrusted with the sale of this Balinese collection which is one of the most significant and rarest ever to come on the market. We expect that the sale will generate enormous interest from Asian and international collectors alike and particularly museums and institutions who appreciate both the historical and artistic value of the collection."

The Balinese Modernist Period specifically covers the period 1928 to 1942, a period in which Bali underwent rapid waves of change brought on by the decline of colonialism, the advent of tourism and the convergence of new cultures on the island of Bali. The names of some of the hundreds of artists involved in the movement were faithfully recorded through the efforts of Western artists and academics, people such as Dutch painter Rudolf Bonnet, Gregory Bateson and Margaret Mead. The movement's geographical epicenter was near the villages of Tampaksiring and Peliatan. It was here and in the villages of Batuan and Sanur where the majority of the paintings in the collection were produced.

Some of the artists featured in the collection include: Ida Bagus Made Nadera, Ida Bagus Ketut Diding, Ida Bagus Kembeng, I Gusti Nyoman Lempad, Ida Bagus Made Togog, and Dewa Putu Sangkan.

The collection will be on view at Singapore's Grand Hyatt Hotel on September 28 and 29 with the auction to be held at 1730 hours on September 29.
