Kröller-Müller art museum just outside of Utrecht was reputed to have the second largest collection of Van Goghs in existence.
And it did, but more about that in another post. For me, the bonus was the Sculpture Garden, a multitude of sculptures set in a woodland setting.
This somewhat snooty-looking fellow welcomed us onto the grounds.A very modern geometric metal sculpture melds with the green lawn in the front of the museum.
From inside the art museum we were treated to tantalizing glimpses of the woodland garden outside.
In the middle of May the tulips and rhododendrons were putting on their best display.
My favourites were the sculptures that utilized the woodland setting like this bronze tree.
This caged piece of sodalite is called ‘Fallen Sky’.
There also were a couple of ‘Fallen Women’.
Their lush figures were popular with art students, especially the boys.
Jean Dubuffet’s walk-about sculpture was a lot of fun and I wrote a whole post just about it alone.A map of the Sculpture Garden.
