Ida Bagus Nyoman Sasak, active -, 18 works

Sasak, along with his two brothers, had only been painting for less than a year at the time when Bateson and Mead started collecting. He had not met Bonnet or Spies, and was not a member of the Pita Maha collective. There are fifteen pictures by him in the Bateson-Mead Commission (H. Geertz 1994: 111).
On the Bateson and Mead list. Sasak had not received an education (he could not speak Malay) and was very poor throughout his life. He made a living by selling his paintings and woodcarvings to tourists, harvesting coconuts and his wife's weaving. He also played in a gamelan orchestra (H. Geertz 1994: 111).
