Literature:

Born into an aristocratic Belgian family and an artist father, Adrien Jean Le Mayeur De Merpes’s childhood was surrounded by art. While he started out studying civil engineering to please his parents, his passion for art could not be suppressed. Le Mayeur seized every opportunity he could to paint and indulge in his passion.

Influenced by European painters such as Paul Gaugin, whose nomadic travels overseas to exotic locations provided him with worldly inspiration, Le Mayeur landed in Bali in 1932. He instantly fell in love with the island, along with its native exotic culture, the light, color, and beauty of the unspoilt land, and decided to make it his second home.

In these two paintings, Le Mayeur’s use of colorful hues and shadowing are reminiscent of the European brush technique of his generation. These features would eventually become a mainstay in his future paintings. The impressionistic swirl of colors would become much more vivid in his Balinese period which followed his European travels.

勒邁耶‧德‧莫赫普赫斯出生在一個比利時的貴族家庭,父親是藝術家,他的童年的一切被藝術包圍。为了遵循父母对他的指望,他主修土木工程,但他对艺术的热忱从没扑灭过。勒邁耶沉迷於艺术当中,无时无刻都在画画。

受到歐洲畫家如保羅·高更在异地游历后得到的灵感启发的影響,勒邁耶在1932年决心到巴厘岛寻找灵感。巴厘岛的島嶼以及当地的本土異國文化,那里的光線、色彩和未经破壞的土地,让他立即愛上了这个岛屿,決定把它作為他的第二故鄉。

在這兩幅畫中,勒邁耶使用的繽紛色彩和陰影讓人联想起他那一代的歐洲畫家的技巧。這些特徵最終將成為他未來繪畫的主要特点。印象派的色彩漩渦將變得更加生動,成为在他的歐洲旅行之後的巴厘時期主要风格。
