Art intermezzo

I need to stop the Hawaii blogging for a day or so, as much as I like to share more wonderful photos with you. This is newsworthy and therefore I will tell you what I did today. In the 'Kurpfälzisches Museum' of Heidelberg is a special exhibiton called 'Die Welle', the wave. Art from more than five centuries under the topic of 'waves' were exhibited. My friend D and I thought it would be fun to go to this exhibition. I so much hoped that they would exhibit some Japanese woodblock prints and I was not dissapointed. There were works from artist all over the world, famous and not so famous ones.
Here some examples:

Gustav Klimt: L'Attesa (1905)
Wellen - Zauber der Bewegung

Oskar Kokoschka 'Schlafende Frau' (aus: Die träumenden Knaben) 1907/1908

Katsushiga Hokusai, The Great Wave of Kanagawa, 1832 (

If you have the chance to go there, by all means do this, we had a lovely afternoon there. And it's only 4.50 euros for students (including the normal ticket for the general exhibiton). One reason more to got there.
