Don Antonio Blanco Museum


Don Antonio Blanco Museum, also known as The Blanco Renaissance Museum, features the award-winning art of the museum’s namesake. Don Antonio Blanco is a talented artist of Spanish-American descent who was born in the Philippines. He married a traditional Balinese dancer named Ni Ronji who is the muse for some of his works. Most of his paintings are of women — boudoir art. His art features the female form and specific parts of the female body. He has captured an amazing array of breasts on canvas. I liked his paintings, but I loved the frames more. So when we found out Don Antonio Blanco carved them himself, we were very impressed. He is a recognized artist not only in Indonesia, but also abroad.

The structure that houses his artwork used to be his home, which he put up during the 1950s when he decided to settle in Bali. It is also where his son, Marco Blanco, now creates his own art. The museum is surrounded by a huge courtyard with lush gardens. Don Antonio Blanco’s preserved studio, a gallery, a cafe, an amphitheater, a family temple, a bird zoo, and a gift shop can be found within the complex.
