Museum Puri Lukisan is located in the heart of Ubud just a few steps away from The Ubud Palace. The history of the museum started in 1929 when Rudolf Bonnet an Amsterdam born artist arrived on this beautiful island, and introduced the ideologies, techniques and materials of western art to Bali. His cooperation with Tjokorda Gde Agung Sukawati, the Prince of Ubud, initiated a new era of Balinese art and painting. Later in 1936, Pita Maha, an artist’s cooperative was formed by Bonnet, Tjokorda Gde Agung Sukawati, Tjokorda Gde Raka Sukawati, and I Gusti Nyoman Lempad. In 1952, the Museum Puri Lukisan was founded to carry out the ideas and uphold the rules of Pita Maha.
