Pictures at an Exhibition – 1

Travelling in North America, last Tuesday February 11th I visited the San Francisco Asian Art Museum. The museum collection is incredibly diverse and impressive. Selected pictures are shown below, after the video of Alice Sarah Ott playing Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition*.

For those who are interested to see the whole series of pictures I took, it is here. Note that some pictures are better than others, since I am not a professional photographer and the pictures were taken with my cell phone camera. Many have explanatory labels, but many have not. Enjoy, but visiting the Museum is very much worthwhile.
