Sculpture flottante 'Otterlo', Marta Pan, UPSIDE DOWN!

In June last year I reported about a visit to the Kröller-Müller Museum in Hoge Veluwe National Park, (see here). At that time there was only time for a very brief and rushed visit. I concluded my blog entry of that visit with the phrase "I'll certainly go back to see more". And that is exactly what I did today.

We drove straight to the museum and were, as always, "welcomed" by the statue of "Monsieur Jaques". A connection with New York was immediately seen. Just behind Monsieur Jaques stands Mark di Suvero's K- Piece. It had only been three weeks ago that I visited Governors Island in New York, where Storm King Art Center currently exposes many similar installations of Mark di Suvero, see here.

The idea was to focus only on the sculpture garden which surrounds the museum. The garden houses a huge variety of sculptures in all styles and sizes. Huge bronze structures, delicate old Greek-like statues, plastic, stone, metal, marble, and wood. It was all there.

One of my all time favorites remains the huge installation "Jardin d'émail" (glazed garden) by Jean Dubuffet. This huge structure which looks like a landscape during the ice age, is the only statue in the park one is actually allowed to walk in and on.
