Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, University of Oregon (Memorial Day Weekend 2013)

At the University of Oregon, we stopped by the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art for a couple of hours.  Here are the pics.

The exterior to the museum.

The museum has a focus on Asian art.

Quote from Proverbs above the entrance.

"A Bridge from the East: The Legacy of Gertrude Bass Werner" by Ellen Tykeson (2004)

"Indian Maiden and Fawn" by Alexander Phimister Proctor (1921-26)

"Baptism of Christ" Ukrainian Orthodox icon (16th century)

"Christ Pantocrator" Russian Orthodox icon (late 17th - early 18th century)

"Bogomater Tichvinskaya [Tichvine Mother of God]" Russian Orthodox icon (18th century)

"Himeji, White Heron Castle Under Blue Sky" by Jun'ichiro Sekino (1977)

The largest (?) gallery inside the museum, focusing on Asian art.

Seated Buddha [Maitreya] (China, Jin Dynasty, 1115-1234)

The Throne Room Assemblage (Qing Dynasty, 1644-1911)

Model of a Pagoda (Qing Dynasty, 18th century); made of jade, teakwood, and bronze

Detail of the pagoda model

"Madonna of the Cherries" by Joos van Cleve or follower (16th century)

"Susanna and the Elders" in the manner of Peter Paul Rubens (17th century)

This and all subsequent details are from the unfinished "The Last Audience of the Hapsburgs" by Artur von Ferraris (1918).  I've included the info below (extra large so one can read it).  It's a large, haunting canvas that was rendered incomplete on account of World War I.

"Amsterdam in the Morning" by Fumio Kitaoka (1972)

Openwork Transom (Ranma) (mid-late 19th century, Japanese)

"Echoing Waterfall" by Yeong Seonu (2000); this is undoubtedly the first North Korean painting that I've ever seen or even heard of (apart from propaganda posters).  The artist lived from 1946 to 2009.

 Coming up = Ninkasi and the Blairally Vintage Arcade.  Stay tuned.
