Exhibition

One of the things that’s always on the list when traveling, is to visit a couple of museums. The exhibition at Städel museum in Frankfurt was a wonderful experience & will remain as a precious memory for life.

Edvard Munch – Norwegian painter. His best known work, The Scream, has become one of the iconic images of world art.
Claude Monet – a French painter & founder of impressionist painting who is seen as a key precursor to modernism, especially in his attempts to paint nature as he perceived it.
Helena Schjerfbeck – a Finnish painter. A modernist painter, she is known for her realist works & self-portraits, and also for her landscapes & still lifes.

Asian Civilisation Museum

We spent a couple of hours at the Asian Civilization Museum (ACM) recently. It’s one of the pioneering museums specializing in the material history of China, Southeast, South & West Asia, from which the various ethnic groups in Singapore trace their ancestry.

It’s a beautiful building architecturally on the outside & just as beautiful & exciting on the inside. We walked through the exhibition of Tang Shipwreck, Ancient religions & Life in Edo – all beautifully told & well presented.

Textile designer

A large exhibition, “Wanja Djanaieff and her twenty-two favorite colors” is now shown at Marabouparken art gallery, displaying her work through the ages & confirms her as one of Sweden’s most influential textile designers.

Wanja was born February 1941 & almost completely unknown to most people, but not her patterns. During the 1960s & 70s, she drew hundreds of textile patterns for clothes, furniture & fabrics, which were used & spread all over Sweden.

Her work became known to a wide audience when she designed clothes for the Swedish Olympic team in Munich in 1972. The pattern with yellow crowns on a blue background becomes Djanaieff’s perhaps most famous work.
