Vintage Balinese Kamasan Painting

Vintage Balinese painting in a traditional Kamasan or Wayang style. Kamasan paintings present visual narratives of the Hindu-Javanese epics and indigenous stories.  We do not know the age or origin of this beautiful piece, which we acquired from a Swiss collection at auction in the late 1990s.  We believe the work was most likely painted sometime between 1930 and 1970.  Not being expert in this style, we would love to hear from you if you can tell us more.

The painting is framed under glass. We believe it is painted on a textile ground, but we have not removed it from the frame to confirm.  For local sale only.

Dimensions: 83 x 99 cm
