Today Kehinde Wiley’s triumphant Napoleon Leading the Army over the Alps (2005) comes home to Brooklyn with its nineteen-century source, Jacques-Louis David’s Bonaparte Crossing the Alps (1800–1). Seen together, the works by David and Wiley reveal how race, masculinity, power, and representation layer onto portraiture and shape the writing of history. See Jacques-Louis David Meets Kehinde Wiley now through May 10. #davidxwiley⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Kehinde Wiley (American, born 1977). Napoleon Leading the Army over the Alps (detail), 2005. Oil on canvas.

The Japanese call these mythical beasts “Korean Lions” but the origin of this pairing of guardian animals is more likely Chinese. There is a tradition that the beast with the open mouth is saying “Ah” while the one with the closed mouth is saying “Mm.” These sounds represent the beginning and end of all things because they are the first and last letters of the ancient Indian language, Sanskrit. So these Korean lions lived in Japan, but their ancestors were Chinese, and they’re speaking an Indian language. All of this reminds us of how inter-connected Asian cultures were even in a very early period. For this and other stories of international exchange in Asia, check out the new #ArtsofAsia galleries. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Koma-Inu (Mouth Closed); One of Pair, early 13th century.

"My 31 years at the Brooklyn Museum have been amazing. My godmother who was also employed at the Museum encouraged me to seek employment here. I enjoy working here, it’s my home away from home. Everyone here is like my second family. Storm on the Rocky Mountain by Albert Bierdstadt is my favorite artwork. I enjoy looking at it because my view of it keeps changing all the time.” — Nadine, Security Supervisor @brooklynmuseum #BKMWAY 📷 @jonathan_dorado
