The Asian Art Museum Of San Francisco: Selected Works

Containing hundreds of the Asian Art Museums finest paintings, sculptures, jewelry, textile and furniture, this art book is an informative guide to one of the world's greatest collections.The character of the art in this book is broad, inventive, original, and stunning in its compass. For the arts of Asia are as vast as mankind, and as complex and remarkable. Yet, while they conform to little of what Western artists know or knew, these arts are born of grand traditions, nurtured talents, and splendid ideas. The arts of Asia originate in the largest of Earth's continents and represent the oldest continuum of civilized activity in this world. This presents a selection by the curators of the highlights of the Asian Art Museum collections. It is, therefore, simply an introduction to the subject, but it is also an invitation for the reader to investigate further, to visit the museum, and to see at first hand the arrayed masterworks of Asian art installed in the galleries.

Having just taken a tour of the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco last month and had the awesome experience of visually going from room to room trying to take in the stunning art works, it was such a pleasure I could end my visit by shopping for some of the items I most admired. However, the costs of the books I wanted were too much for me. So, the obvious choice was to go to .com to not only locate numerous Asian art catalogs, but have them all be extraordinarily priced for the used but in excellent condition. Now, if only the shipping prices could be coordinated into less costs!
