Vincent's Yellow

a[n] [auto]biography and a love story.

Kroller-Muller Museum

So, today I went to the Kroller-Muller Museum. It is in Arnhem, in Gelderland. Yes, that does sound oddly like something from Princess Bride, but that’s part of its charm.

I wish I could upload photos right now from my camera, hopefully I will be able to tomorrow, because WOW what an experience. Firstly, I could take all the non-flash photos of the paintings I wanted in the museum, unlike the Van Gogh Museum, so I took a ton there. And they’re quite good if I do say so myself.

But THEN, on TOP of that, the museum is in the middle of a national park. So today I took a train to a nearby town (arnhem, where I’m staying tonight), then a bus to Otterlo, and then I had to walk a bit to the park, and then they had free bicycles within the park. Pretty awesome, right? Except someone had taken my free bike for a ride when I got out (of course I was like the last person out of the museum) and so I had to walk the 4 km or so back to the bus stop. However, I didn’t really mind this because the park was incredibly gorgeous. I took another hundred pictures while walking back of all the fields and forests and beautiful things all around. It was amazing. The picture below is not mine, but it illustrates a bit of what I’m talking about.


(Of course my pictures are even better.)

Aren’t you kinda thinking, oh yeah, that’s like a Van Gogh? I am. I’ll get you a picture later.

At least now I can finally rest. Catch you later…

    Oh man, I love when you take pictures of Vincent’s paintings, and of other things too, of course. :) Happy trails, Teresa.

    Just so you know, I was speaking with a French-born US Citizen today who RAVED about the Kroller-Muller Museum. Looks like I missed the boat!
