Desak Putu Lambon (1923 –1975 - 1979)

Despite her family being poor, she did attend school for three years and could read and write Malay. Adrian Vickers has Lambon been born around 1925. Lambon is the only female painter in the Bateson-Mead commission. Unlike many other artists of the time, Lambon was not influenced by Bonnet or Spies, but by Theo Meier, another European artist resident in Bali (Sanur). More accurately, she was influenced by working in the studio/household that Maier created, where artists from Sanur and Batuan met together. This gave her work a more naturalistic feel than that of Ngendon's. Her father was a prominent craftsman who made leather shadow puppets, costumes and masks, and many of Lambon's paintings included pictures of these crafts.

Lambon's work included collaboration with her father, Dewa Putu Kebes
