Offering a fabulous old pigments painting from Ubud Bali Indonesia.
This is classical or traditional painting with the colors coming from roots, bones, plants, ochre from clay, cinnabar, etc. The canvas is fine cotton starched with rice flour.This was once framed and you can see the margins have the rust marks of old nails.
The painting measures 27" X 18". The work has no tears or stains or damage.
It features an incredibly intricate scene which highlights the traditionally lush vegetation of Bali. A woman is at a pool with her young son and in the trees is a female spirit of some sort. In the background is a bed in a pavilion.
This belonged to my aunt and has been stored for decades. The colors are in shades so soft the painting looks like a dream or vision. (they are brighter in the photos due to the flash)
The artist has signed the work PD Jegal - Ubud Bali. There is another word which may be the title but it is written in Balinese.
