Library Exhibit at PEM

Salem’s Peabody Essex Museum is a quirky treasure, and despite some sleek modern elements still retains the “cabinet of curiosities” quality that has been curated out of many museums.

So what’s even quirkier than its main galleries? The library I bet. There’s a show from the library up now, with, among other things, this oddly Warhol-like chromolithograph of Beethoven (it would make a great CD cover for a recording of some of his piano variations.)
