I Dewa Ketut Baru (1926–2008)

Baru claims to have never had contact with any Western painters (most probably referring to Bonnet and Spies). He did however sell his paintings to tourists at Sanur. He was not a member of the Pita Maha. There are twenty-six paintings by him in the Bateson-Mead Commission. He worked extensively in the 1950s.
Baru had received three years of education at a Dutch elementary school and could speak Malay. He also danced in the gambuh. In later life he became a healer (balian) and studied classical Balinese (H. Geertz 1994: 102).   Hildred Geertz has Baru been born circa 1926.
