A couple of Joe’s buddies from school joined us and we started at the Seattle Asian Art Museum. They had a special show, the Royal Paintings of Jodhpur. Amazing tiny little pictures of millions of people. As Joe said, ‘”historically significant, but, do you really want to use a magnifying glass to look at art?” Another show of Chinese painting was amazing.
insert lunch and a visit to Krispy Kreme here (Joe and I restrained ourselves admirably by only eating 2 donuts each).
Then on to the highlight of the day. The Seattle Art Museum. sigh. It was amazing. Hard to know where to start to describe it. I have a list of artists to learn more about. A sketch of a sea bear. And a new appreciation for how much Joe knows about art and art history. Not to mention the fact that he could read the writing on the Persian tiles. Ridiculous.
