Hi, my dear readers ♥
In January I saw some posters with The Birth of Venus from Bouguereau around Munich with invitation to Gut • Wahr • Schön exhibition. Of course it caught my eye and we decided to give it a try on one of our Sunday museum/gallery adventures ♪ We had to be quick, because the exhibition was coming to its end ! It took place at Kunsthalle München a new place for us - it's right in the city center, but we've never been there before !
I had no idea what to expect from the exhibition, I only somehow knew it will be good. And it was more that just good IT WAS AMAZING ♥ The exhibition was showing works from 19th century Musée d´Orsay, most of which have never been shown in Germany before *o* So unique !
I loved every single painting, but there were two special ones which touched my art-loving soul the most - seeing Dante and Virgil by William-Adolphe Bouguereau in real life was something incredible ! IT'S SO HUGE AND BEAUTIFUL ! I love the painting so much, because it has such a powerful energy, emotions, bright red colours and absolutely perfect anatomy ♥ (I had to buy a poster at the gallery and now these two boys are hanging
out at my wall forever!)
The second painting which I couldn't stop starring at was La Légende Bretonne by Edgar Maxence ♥ I've never seen this work before ! It's so magical and has beautifuly mysterious fairytale atmosphere, it also has the most Hogwarts frame, so I'm a bit suspicious that without some anti-muggle spell the painting is probably moving and instead of Musée d´Orsay, it was borrowed from Beauxbatons ...
And here are some more photos of displayed paintings I took ♪
(except this one is tapestry, not painting)
The thing I like about Kusnthalle München is that they are very modern and social-media-friendly :) for example - at the end of exhibition there's a mirror with official hashtag written on it, to save people from taking bathroom selfies :D Also there was Birth of Venus 3D replica made of paper with missing Venus, where everyone could feel like her at least for one photo :D
Oh and here's my outfit of the day ♥
I hope you're all doing fine ♪
Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥
