Chinese Takeout

Briscoe Western Art Museum

Recommended Posts

Chinese Takeout

I'm at a business conference here in San Antonio, TX and last night I stopped by the BRISCOE WESTERN ART MUSEUM and I immediately thought of this forum. All of the art (paintings, sculptures, taxidermy, photography, etc) is based on the "Old West" and it was PHENOMENAL! Many of the pieces were created by artists that actually lived back in the 1800s and early 1900s, so you're looking at a painting created by someone actually looking at the subject of their piece. Pretty cool. I spent about 2 hours walking around, thinking, "I wonder if this idea/perspective will be in the next Red Dead!" hahaha

 

I posted a couple pix that I took below...you can see all the photos at my FLICKR album.

Neat. I wonder if Rockstar used these Museums for inspiration for the Series?
