Henan provincial art museum

Managed a brief tour last week through the Henan provincial art gallery, which is in the Central Business District. The Arts Centre is a collection of golden easter eggs separated by a couple of glass "wings".

The art museum is the largest of the easter eggs. The others are for operas, ballets, and the like.

It's springtime, and the CBD is filled with wondrous, inexplicable things.

The workmen are cleaning the glass with great care.

. . . while the food deliverymen await orders.

We went on a nice Sunday. Perhaps the weather kept a lot of people away? This is the rather large entry hall.

Here is the doorman.

Most of the paintings seemed really familiar--not different from paintings in the Hubei provincial museum. It may have been a display by the same artists. Either that, or the style of painting is so similar, they all just seemed the same. Anyway, most of the paintings were of persimmon trees, ducks, geese, flowers, and so on.

One section that was different was the section devoted to Henan folk art. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with the stories behind them.

Three dogs and a monkey.

We didn't end up spending a lot of time there, and I will have to go back next weekend. I am in Tokyo for the next few days.
