L.A. Mayer Museum for Islamic Art
L.A. Mayer Museum for Islamic Art Review
This institution prides itself on being a private Jewish initiative (opened 1974) that showcases the considerable and diverse artistic achievements of Islamic culture worldwide. Its rich collections—ceramics, glass, carpets, fabrics, jewelry, metalwork, and painting—reflect a creativity that spanned half a hemisphere, from Spain to India, and from the 7th century to modern times. Unconnected to the main theme is a unique collection of rare (some priceless) antique European clocks and watches, the pride of the founder's family.
