Amsterdam, Day Five

A busy, arty day. I went to the Rijksmuseum, the Stedleijk, MOCO, and the Van Gogh Museum.

The Rijksmuseum is beautiful Museum. I really liked their Neoclassical Collection, especially their portraits of Louis and Napoleon Bonaparte, right next to each other.

I liked MOCO quite a lot, even though it was extremely small. I probably went through it in about forty-five minutes. The collection was small, but impressive with a few pop art masters (Haring, Warhol, KAWS). It has an ultra contemporary collection, with a high appreciation for the Instagram-basic aesthetic.

The Van Gogh Museum was obviously very popular. It was a little uncomfortably popular, with people crammed along the walls, in front of paintings that may have not even been painted by Van Gogh.

My favorite Van Gogh painting (At Eternity’s Gate) was not there.
