'In Almere is alles nieuw; daar is geen replica uit de Gouden Eeuw te vinden. Het heeft zijn korte geschiedenis, die meer is dan charme, en wie er goed kijkt zal het geen moeite kosten te zien dat de nieuwe stad en het nieuwe land ook mooi zijn, weergaloos.'

'Everything in Almere is new; there are no replica's from the Golden Age to be found here. It has a short history which is more than charm , and for those who observe carefully it will not be difficult to see that the new town and new land have an unparalleled beauty of their own.'

Singer Museum in Laren

I made these pictures in the garden of the Singer Museum in Laren, 
a Dutch ‘old artistsvillage’. 
The museum is devoted to presenting and preserving the collection of the American artist William Henry Singer  (1868–1943) and his wife Anna.
The museum hosts the Singer collection of paintings and sculpture and artifacts, by members of the Laren School, the Hague School (Pulchri Studio) and  Bergen School (art), but also has examples of Expressionism.
There is now a beautiful exposition with the theme: 
Painters at the sea, from Mondriaan until Munch.
Unfortunately it was forbidden to make pictures in the museum, 
but for more information click: www.singerlaren.nl

 'Braamboot' by Maria Roosen

'Drie Balansen' by Bert Frijns

Always nice for a picture these 'viewing-holes'
(I don't know this is the right English word?)

3 opmerkingen:

  1. Leuke locatie en prima foto's Maria

    greotjes, Joop

  2. Everything what takes me away from Anders Bering-Breivik tonight is good. Culture is one of possibilities - so thank you for your post!

  3. I find the Braam Boat beautiful in color and form! I think you mean a sky hole? (a whole between the leaves of the tree where you can see the sky) It's a term, commonly used by painters (artists).
