We’re in Rotterdam, Netherlands being tourists. The first destination was Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen (don’t ask me to pronounce this). Anyways, it was a great museum. A variety of art from 15th century to now (Bosch, Rembrant, Rubens, Monet, Van Gogh, Mondriaan, Kandinsky, Miro..). They have it nicely organized with good explanations written on the walls. There are no English audio guide available though.
Well, I obviously liked their surrealist rooms the most. There were two small ones with art pieces from the famous surrealist artists (Dali, Magritte, Ernst and even a Dutch artist, Moersman, who apparently caused a riot when he submitted his ‘Afternoon’ piece to the Exhibition of Independent Artists Society in Amsterdam in 1932). My favorites were, of course, the three Magritte pieces. The picture is the painting named ‘Not to be Reproduced’. The reflection of the man is the same as the back of the man while the book is correctly reflected. 😉
We ended up spending 4hrs in there and missed lunch. I’m starving and now blogging to keep my mind busy while we get to a restaurant and get some food!!
