Beyond Golden Clouds



Did the hullabaloo over the post-Impressionist show make you forget about the rest of the exhibits coming to San Francisco?  Your secret’s safe with me, as long as you see this exhibition,  “Beyond Golden Clouds"  - opening this weekend at the Asian.  (real review to come)

An ideal combination of function and beauty, Japanese folding screens have inspired generations of artists to create career-defining masterpieces. This exhibition showcases large scale examples from the esteemed collections of the Art Institute of Chicago and Saint Louis Art Museum, celebrating the full range of the format in various media. Artworks range in date from the sixteenth to the twentieth century, demonstrating the longevity of this art form as well as its currency among modern-day artists.
