de Young no 1

The M.H. de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park at the Music Concourse in San Francisco houses a magnificent collection of American art, particularly of the 18th and 19th Centuries as well as African and Oceanic collections.

Here, Frederick Edwin Church's painting, "Rainy Season in the Tropics (1866)" occupies the same room as the contemporary cast glass sculpture, "Dress 3" (2001), by Karen La Monte.

Another cast glass sculpture, "Untitled 2006", by Nicolas Africano.
