This post is a continuation of my last one on the walk to the museum.
The art museum has two floors with art exhibitions with American art, European art from the Early Middle Ages and up to now as well as Contemporary Art.
The pictures I share are not organised in all these categories, just an expression of what I liked and wanted to remember. Many of the artworks shown here were created about the same period by different American and European artists.
Rembrandt van Rijn, Dutch. Oil on oak panel Head of Christ 1648-1656
Landscape with a river Hampstead Heath 1808-27 by John Constable, English

Interior of a Tavern 1886, P.S. Kroeyer Danish, 1851-1909
I was surprised to see a painting of P.S. Kroeyer here in Philadelphia. If you would like to see more of his paintings go to my recent post on the Danish Skagen Painters.
Another great Dane is the sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen, active in Rome and Copenhagen 1770-1844.

More about the Degas’ Little Dancer in a previous post.
I often marvel about how skilled the artists were in distant times. They didn’t have the material goods as we have today or electricity to light up the long dark hours. The internet or mobile phones didn’t distract them, so they could concentrate on their work.
