Art Appreciation

I've been wanting to visit the Moderna Museet and when the announced their current exhibition, Turner, Monet, Twombly, I knew it was time to go! Dale was also interested so as soon as we had a free day we went. It just happened to be a grey cold day so I guess everyone else had the same idea, the museum was packed! Despite how busy it was, we still had a great time perusing the paintings. We took advantage of the free audio guide and it really added a lot of depth to the exhibit. If you plan to go I highly recommend using the audio guides! This was certainly one of the best laid out exhibits I've ever seen. I told Dale I felt this way and he said, "Would you expect anything less from Sweden?" True Dale. Sweden does know 'where it's at'. (Do the kids even say that anymore?)

Anyway, my favorite piece was by Twombly, 'Untitled, 2007':
And Dale was really digging Monet, 'San Giorgio Maggiori at Dusk, 1908':
Once we finished the exhibit we stopped in the cafeteria for a bite to eat. I was so excited to see they had Pumpkin Soup on the menu, I have been having pumpkin withdrawals. The pumpkin soup did not disappoint either. It was the right combination of creamy and spicy. Yum yum!  
Feeling full of food and art, we left the museum and began the trek home. But we walked for a little bit because we hadn't been on the island of Skeppsholmen yet. We found a free art exhibit just outside the museum! Sculptures in a park on the center of the island.
You never know what you'll find in Stockholm!
Love Always,
