Kröller-Müller Sculpture Garden near Utrecht, Holland

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.Statue of a somewhat self-satisfied man in Kroller Muller Sculpture Garden near Utrecht in HollandA very modern geometric metal sculpture melds with the green lawn in the front of the museum.
