The present lot, Portrait of Ni Pollock and a Companion, is a charming example from Le Mayeur’s oeuvre as it displays his flair for depicting the female anatomy. The body language of the two figures, each inclining towards the other, invites the viewer to lean in closer, ultimately creating a more intimate experience. One sees through the eyes of the artist and garners feelings of admiration for the women, who are so in tune with their culture and natural milieu as they work on their weaving. The branches of flowers hanging in the backdrop and the fresh frangipanis in their hair echo the elegant floral motifs on Ni Pollock’s batik sarong. The floral motifs construct a dream-like ambience; an ode to Le Mayeur’s love and sentiment for Bali.
