A modern art museum

One of the places we visited in Palma was the Esbaluard Museum of Modern Art.....there were some very interesting pieces of art there.....OH is not a fan of modern art......and was not very impressed......I loved some of it......and some left me cold......I'm still not convinced that a series of small very blurry photos of half dressed women on a swing is art!
 But I loved this piece at the entrance to the museum......no photography allowed inside.
And the views from the roof alone made it worth entering the museum.....even for OH......the most stunning views in all directions.......almost the entire city at our feet.....not to mention the sea......and it really is a beautiful city.

Nice layouts - I like the yellow circles on that second one. And that is definitely a great piece outside the museum!

I'm with you, I'm not a fan but some of it I can cope with :) you've put your story forward so well with this layout

I like the layout Jacky. That house is amazing! I know what you mean about modern art though. I can take it or leave it to be honest. That said I always come away with lots of questions like what constitutes art. I guess modern art always makes me think!

Modern art is controversial isn't it? Maybe that is the point - to generate debate and interest in the wide scope of art? I don't know, some is a bit out there for me!

I too am not a fan of modern art but love the upside down house.

The view does look amazing. I have an uncle who was an art teacher for a while and he took me to the museum and got me looking at some really modern stuff (then!) when I was little, so that got me interested. But my favourite will always be medieval art..the thing on the news last night about the painted panels being stolen from the church in Devon made me really mad

There is some modern art I love but the majority I just don't understand what the artist is saying. That rooftop view is awesome!

Gorgeous pics Jacky and such a stunning view from the roof top there...I always love your layouts and think how lovely it must be to look back on them!
Hope you're having a great week,

I'm not sure about modern art either.
Great pages to document your visit & feelings.

Modern art is such a subjective thing. Sometimes it appeals to me, and other times I wonder how someone could call "that" art. ;o)

Your pages are lovely though, Jacky - such beautiful scenery!
