Armor from the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Collection
Boston Museum of Fine Arts – Samurai! Exhibit
April 14, 2013 – August 4, 2013
Ann and Graham Gund Gallery (LG31)
I am a sucker for oriental armor and weaponry. The elegance, the balance, the history, the storm shrouded in the quiet, the precision and devotion. The artistry.
Perhaps some of that also comes from the fact that my very first published work was called “Macromedia Flash Super Samurai.” [Amazon Link]. It was named after an author’s communication tool that we implemented and used when we wrote the book.
Anyway – if you find yourself visiting Boston this spring/summer give this collection a view. If you live around here then you should visit as well. I plan on doing so.
