Austrian-born artist Roland Strasser studied painting in Vienna and Munich in the 1910s. He first travelled to Indonesia in 1920 and also visited Siam, New Guinea, China, India, Mongolia, Tibet, Japan and North Africa. Returning to Bali in 1934, Strasser lived and painted in his studio in the mountainous area of Kintamani for the next ten years, producing many portraits, figure studies and landscapes depicting the local scene. In 1952 Strasser immigrated to the United States and worked there until his death in 1974 in Santa Monica, California. His paintings are in private and public collections in cities as diverse as Vienna, Berlin, Sydney, Ubud (Indonesia), Honolulu, Los Angeles and Toronto.
