The Jewish Museum in Berlin: Part One

A Visit to the Kunsthalle Museum

While I was in Hamburg, Nathalie and I went on a whirlwind tour of the Kunsthalle Museum.  Our first stop was the Paul Klee "Angels" exhibit.  There were no photos allowed, but we snapped a few when we got to the participatory portion of the exhibit.  There were pencils and paper and you were asked to draw an angel and leave it in a box.  They had many of the drawings other people had done hanging up.  We had to give it a try!

We started with blind contour drawings.  That's where you draw without looking at the paper or lifting your pencil.  It's one long blind line.

Then we moved on to some artistic interpretation....

I love that we ended up with two very different interpretations of the idea of an angel!

After the Klee exhibit, Nathalie took me to see some of her favorite paintings in the permanent collection of the museum. Here are the ones I loved:

So much color and emotion and story.  Just fabulous!

The museum itself is a lovely building.  Very grand.

Super melodramatic, no?

If you're ever in Hamburg, I highly recommend a visit to the Kunsthalle.  It was wonderful!

Thanks for stopping by!
