Kröller-Müller Museum- Part 2 of 2

Yum! A 'fishsicle'!

The lush natural surroundings rival the art collection in beauty!

Sculptures of many different sizes and materials...

...abound in this lovely setting.
 Christo and Jeanne-Claude have a small piece in the collection.

I experienced a 'tingle' of deja vu when I encountered the Giacometti figure (below).

A nearly identical piece is in a quite similar setting at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark.

(You can see for yourself, here.)

Due to the rain, I didn't get to see as many outdoor sculptures as I'd have liked.

Next time, I'll plan to spend much of the day outdoors! :)

The colors in these paintings truly were burn your retina bright!!

I end our 'museum tour' with this textile-related piece...

... a classical female figure with her...erm...enormous mound of laundry?!?

Next time: my visit with a dear felting friend in Maastricht!

It can be fascinating to spend time in a "sculpture park" like this, but it is a little weather-dependent...

Lovely photos, and very interesting too. Sorry about the rain, but like you said, "next time......."

Rachel-Although there was plenty to see inside, I know that I missed lots of 'gems in the forest'! :)
Peebee-Oh, yes!
Sandie-One day, I hope!
