Stockholm – Thielska Gallery – Pictures through Ports

leave a comment »

This week, the sun has been out, but never-the-less, it has been a precious resource this winter in Stockholm. Friends here, knowing my appreciation for art suggested the Thielska Gallery, which is an absolute gem – small collection and very excellent collection.

Anyway, here are some pictures from January 17, playing with light in windows, frames, doorways at the Thielska Gallery.

There is a fine collection of Edvard Munch, but after seeing more of his work, I do not believe the scream is his most “distrubed” work.  Yes, The Scream is open and forceful, but there are other faceless works that show a greater sense of despair.  I will note he has a similar colour palate as Van Gogh (later work) and similarity in patterns also come out.

Winter, northern light and the outdoors are major themes here.

One of my favourite watercolourist is Carl Larsson and there were several excellent painting’s of his here.  Worth returning to study in more detail, (when) if I get back to painting.

I will let Judy picked which of the two she prefers.  The ligthing was changing quickly, so I had little time to compose get the angles right.  The first (third shot) does not have me smiling, but includes the exterior window.  The next (second shot) is a better portrait, but I am not as well placed (there were few options, as the shadows were dropping).
