I enjoyed an afternoon in the Kunsthaus Zürich, Switzerland’s premiere art museum.
Kunsthaus Zürich – A Photo Essay
My wife has cultivated in me a great appreciation for art and I now make it a point to visit art museums in major cities around the world. In Zurich, I was traveling with a friend who also greatly appreciated art and we spent three hours wandering through the Kunsthaus (art house) and taking in not only a number of great paintings and sculptures from masters of the past and present, but also a fascinating
Monet, Picasso, and van Gogh may be the big draws here, but I also appreciated the works of Marc Chagall, Oskar Kokoschka, and Loves Corinth.
Another favorite part of the museum is a room designed by Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist that provides an ethereal experience of lights and sounds in a 3D space. I could spend hours in here watching the lights change color and listening to the music change, as if to represent the changing seasons (it’s a bit difficult to describe – you must see it yourself). I love how this room attracted “oohs” and “awes” from both young and old.
