Opposite the market is the former home of I Gusti Lempad, which has been in the family for well over a century. The paintings for sale are by his family but his are not for sale here (the best place to see them is at Museum Puri Lukisan and Neka Art Museum). I Gusti Nyoman Lempad, like his father and children, was a talented painter who died at the remarkable age of 116 in 1978. He originally painted in the Wayang style, but moved to a more expressive, freer style, painting and drawing in black Chinese ink on paper.
