This also applies to the field of Asian art, in the East as well as in the West. Especially from the late nineteenth century onwards connoisseurs have created outstanding collections, individually and collectively via societies. Most of the major collections of Asian art originally started as private initiatives and later developed into museums.

The collection of the VVAK distinguishes itself from the collections of the various Dutch ethnographical museums by focusing on high quality art works only. They both resulted in the foundation of museums and their members collectively assembled excellent art objects to exhibit publicly. One of the first museums for Asian art in Europe was initiated by the French connoisseur Emile Guimet and was based on his interest for ancient religions.
Shortly after , the Rietberg Museum was founded on the vast collections of the German-Swiss banker Eduard von der Heydt. The history of collecting can be viewed through a variety of paradigms, as keynote speaker prof. John Guy argues. He will analyse historical, cultural, political and ethnic framing of collecting Asian art, both in private and public arenas.
The heyday of collecting non-western art is over now. Today, the export and import of art from other continents is strictly regulated. The provenance of each object must be checked on the legal circumstances of its acquisition and origin. At the same time, museums reconsider ways to exhibit Asian art and heritage, protecting it while at the same time trying to attract a broader and younger audience. From 9.
Marijke Klokke and dr. Museum Volkenkunde Leiden and Tropenmuseum Amsterdam. Most importantly the book suffers from numerous Western cliches. I am not talking trivial things like about Death shooting his gun non-stop and never bother reloading it. Imagine the following situation: the Gunslinger - I mean Death - comes to even the score with a person who wronged him. What does the latter do?
Gives long 2-page pointless speech before promptly getting shot. Exciting, is not it; I could hardly contained my yawns. Once again, this is Death we talk about, immortal and invulnerable: somehow I have no doubt about the final outcome. This comic book can be skipped without any reservations unless you are a huge fan of both Westerns AND dystopia. Jan 05, Lindsey Rey rated it really liked it Shelves: , graphic-novels.

That better change! The four horsemen of the apocalypse are reborn this happens a fair bit except one The art is some of the best art in comics right now. Dragotta is freaking amazing, so is Martin. Fantastic job! The characters are all very interesting. The action scenes The action scenes in this series are some of the best in comics! Very well drawn, intense and bloody! The suspense! Oh my gosh the suspense! I was expecting this to be predictable but it is not! This is one of the most suspenseful comics ever! The social commentary is some of the best commentary I have seen in comics.
The world building is super well done. The dialogue is fantastic. I can not recommend this book enough!

Bullet Review: This is so Hickman, it's not even funny.
I think the biggest reason I'm giving it 3 stars is because I actually have half an idea of what is going on - more than I ever did with that stupid Avengers White Event crap.

East of West: The Promise promises lots of interesting stuff, based on this first volume, and I took my time with it, but still am not sure what I think of it. I like the art.
The story is basically a Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse story where they are kids, and the central character is one of them, Death, who is looking for someone.

Oh, and that Apocalypse aspect of the Four Horsemen is the basic premise here, we are at the End of Time. And it's also a Western, pro-Native American. And with lots of violence in it. Oh, and it's sci fi, too, with some futuristic high tech. And Mao, or one of them. And none of these threads come together in the first volume! Promises, promises. Somebody tell me it is all worth it and and at least some of it comes together? Personally, I got a little intrigued about this because I had just read the non fiction study of the end of Arctic ice in The End of the Ice, and the end-of-times The Dark Mountain Manifesto, and I often read some dystopian work of various kinds.
There's a lot of it out there, eh? So this had me going because I had just read that stuff, but see the last paragraph for why this is a bit of work. So the setting is the American West and Death is a ghostly white not all black, right gunslinger, who has been killed?
The US seems to be divided into 7 different areas, sub-countries? Ideas abound in this one, not all of them original, not sure if they are coherent, cohesive. Now I need to read other reviews to see what I missed.
Collecting East and West
And read the next one. East of West is the quintessential Jonathan Hickman book. It starts out confusing and comprehension can only be earned by rereads. A Hickman book is also heavy in alternate history and pseudosciences which this title has in spades. This book is definitely unlike any other in the market right now.
It's different from his Marvel books where in Avengers he may be trying to erase the concept of hero, they are still heroes, in East of West, there's no hero, but an anti-hero, similar in vein to Clint E East of West is the quintessential Jonathan Hickman book.

I mean, the Horseman of Death could harld be considered a hero if he is the clear protagonist in this book. Apr 06, Samuel Nakat rated it really liked it. Don't read many graphic novels or comics, but this is a reminder of why I should read more. I really liked this book. It was a ton of fun and quite suspenseful. It had a cool twist on the normal western as well. The art is here really was fantastic, and the action scenes were pretty awesome. The character of Death was really great, and the book was just an entertaining ride.

Nov 05, Sesana rated it liked it Shelves: dystopian , comics. I'm honestly not entirely sure how I feel about this book. There are some interesting and clever concepts, and the art is fantastic. But there's a lot being thrown out all at once. Too much, I think. Yes, the story is obviously on a grand scale.
