Museum of modern and contemporary art

Took this photo last summer, and... I forgot the title of this piece. And I couldn't find it on the net either. But, oh boy, I love it!

The perpetual daydream of the three madmen from the mountain

A painting by German painter Daniel Richter, to be seen at the Museum of modern art. More about him here.
As for the original title... It is: der ewige Tagtraum der drei Irren vom Berg

The fish market

I am cooking right now, so this seems the perfect post... Well, no fish tonight, I'm doing a fish-less Moroccan couscous.
This was painted by Joachim Beuckelaer in 1568, and can ce seen at the Palais des Rohan. More about the painter here.

The palace of the princes-bishops-cardinals de Rohan

That's right, they were princes, bishops and cardinals, all together, all at the same time. And well, seems they didn't like Ikea forniture...
The bedroom, far bigger than our flat:
They were short people.
Wonder what the toilet looks like...

Do you remember Nipper? No? Maybe now...

Well, my photo shows a newer version... I am sure the gramophone worked better, musically speaking!

Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art

On a rare sunny day... I didn't like this building at first, but it is growing on me. Next step: stepping inside. Well, next week is museum night.

Is it a horse or a bird??? Cheval ou oiseau???

Well, it is a horse with bird's head!
Created by the Italian Mimmo Paladino, his head is covered with real gold. The city of Strasbourg bought it 20 years ago for 250 millions italian lire, quite a lot. 4 meters tall, it stands on the roof of the Museum of Modern Art, and is called 'Hortus Conclusus', which means 'enclosed garden'. Don't ask me why.
No, really don't.

Museum of modern lard - Musee du lard moderne

AKA the museum of modern art... But I guess, for many Strasburgers (yes, Ich bin ein Strasburger, lol), the joke has to made... It is the multicolored building in the mist, btw.

Musee de l'art moderne, en fait... Mais pour beaucoup de gens, la vanne est sans doute trop bonne... C'est le batiment colore dans le brouillard.
