    A painting by celebrated Indonesia-based Belgian painter Adrien-Jean Le Mayeur re-discovered in Dublin less than two months ago will highlight Bonhams Southeast Asian Modern and Contemporary Art sale in Hong Kong on April 22. Two Women Arranging Flowers in the Interior is an intimate depiction of Le Mayeur’s home in Bali – a traditional Joglo house which in his own words served as his ‘little paradise’. Le Mayeur lived for most of his life in Bali, and his home has been converted into a museum of his work. This painting of the interior of his home is extremely rare, only a handful are known to exist. It was bought directly from the artist and his wife by Dutch collector Isaac van Bueren in the 1950’s and passed down in the family to the current owners, who live in Dublin. The guide price is HK$ 1,800,000-2,800,000 (Euro 194,510 – 302,505).
