"Survival and Change explores the work of three generations of Balinese painters in the context of the extraordinary political and social changes that have occurred in the region during the 20th century." "Survival and Change not only focuses on the artists and their work, but also consumers and their expectations. It examines changing Western attitudes to non-Western art, and looks at how demand for an imposed view of Bali has influenced art practice and pressured artists. Detailed analyses of particular paintings provide insight into the beliefs and techniques that inform Balinese art practice, and demonstrate the richness and diversity of these dedicated artists."--BOOK JACKET.
