Krüller-Muller museum in the Hoge Veluwe

So most of you liked last pictures of the Hoge Veluwe park already, right? Wait until you see the magnificent museum that is located in the middle of the park. At the end of the 19th century Helene Kröller-Müller was taking art courses in The Hague and got inspired to start an art collection which turned into the world's biggest private collection of Van Goghs as well as many other works at the turn of that century. Next to the museum a huge sculpture garden has been developed.

Aaaah I could spend days in museums. There's always so much to see and it always seems I'm not paying enough credit to these art pieces . I'd like to absorb them all, so I'm always very happy if you're allowed to take pictures.

Needle tower by Kenneth Snelson (1927)....if only mobile phone antenna's could be this aesthetic!

Concetto spaziale 'Natura' by Lucio Fontana

Palissade by Evert Strobos

can't find the title anymore but it was something inspired by Pollock. let me know if you know this! I really really like it. That little patch of red just finishes it, without it would be quite dead, now it is alive.

Compositie 10 in zwart wit Piet Mondriaan. Quite fresh and relaxing huh. Like an inviting friendly maze. There was another composition with thick lines....totally different atmosphere!

Violon - Pablo, masterpiece

I know this sculpture! I've seen it in a class. it's about movement. It shows the muscles being pushed back by the motion. And now I can't find the title or artist anywhere. Anyone who can tell me?

Vincent van Gogh (1853 - 1890)...the master himself looking rather villain here

which is clearly not in the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam as Wikipedia states.

Caféterras bij nacht (Place du Forum)

Landweg in de Provence bij nacht

Aaaaaaaaaaah what a pleasures to see these!

Didn't see this "Horizon painting" though....pretty awesome huh?
So which one do you like most? Let me know

We're definitely going there when I come visit you (I'm thinking ahead).

The sculpture is a Boccioni. I love that one so much.

Tiens, ik ben nochtans honderd procent zeker dat ik de aardappeleters wel degelijk in het Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam heb gezien. Misschien is het tijdelijk uitgeleend?

@yab: ok die aardappeleters bleven me dus ambeteren. Ze staan vermeld op de website van Kruller Muller en ook op bordje aan de muur was niets vermeld van bruikleen of zo.

Na wat googlen over aardappeleters en kruller muller kom ik verscheidene blogs tegen met dezelfde discussies en dan de oplossing: er zijn 3 schilderijen met aardappeleters. Hier is het mooi uitgelegd en staan de verschillende versies afgebeeld. Tiens, ik had het moeten weten, de definitieve versies met het meisje met grote ogen is wel degelijk een groot verschil met dat uit Kruller Muller. Voila, weer veel bijgeleerd :)
