PACIFIC ASIA MUSEUM

(Grace Nicholson’s Treasure House of Oriental and Western Art)


Grace Nicholson, a noted collector and authority on American Indian and Asian Art and artifacts, supervised the design of her combination gallery and museum which was completed in 1929. It has been called an outstanding example of 1920s revival architecture and is unique for its use of Chinese ornamentation.
