my summer 2013 images part 3. /Gothenburg, Sweden
While in Gothenburg we saw art, pure art here:
A museum with good shadow 🙂
‘At the sea’ by Albert Edefelt.
‘Albert Gustaf Aristides Edelfelt (21 July 1854 – 18 August 1905)
was a Swedish-speaking Finnish painter.’
One of my favorite artists!

Hugo Birger 12.1.1854 – 17.6.1887
‘In Paris at the end of 1886, Birger made his largest painting ever,
Frukosten hos Ledoyen.
It depicts several famous Nordic painters having breakfast together on the day of the
Paris Salon’s opening. It was a common tradition for the painters
to gather on that day and have breakfast at the Ledoyen restaurant
to celebrate the opening of the Paris Salon.’
wow, wow, wow…look at the lights and shadows….so beautiful!
What is interesting is that in this painting you can see Albert Edefelt – cheers!
Outside of the museum you can see this guy
‘Poseidon, the sea god, by Carl Milles is one of Gothenburg’s most famous landmarks.’
