Features From My Visit to: The Toledo Museum of Art - BUILDING#1

TMA (Toledo Museum of Art) is one of my favorite places in Toledo, Ohio.  I first visited this beautiful museum when I was in high school in Canada.  I grew up in the Windsor area and I was privileged to go to a high school with an advanced art program.  We actually visited the TMA twice throughout my high school career.  I had no idea when I was a teenager that I would actually marry an American and then settle in the Toledo area!  I now visit my favorite museum once a year.

I will be featuring a few pieces from the TMA each month.

During the winter months I always notice (more than during any other season) the shadows and highlights while inside on sunny days.  This painting depicts those glimmering shadows.

“Interior of Courtyard, Strandgade 30”

By Vilhelm Hammershøi (Danish, 1864-1916)

This artist painted more than 60 canvases of the apartment shown in today's featured painting.  Vilhelm and his wife Ida moved to this second floor apartment in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1898 (he lived there for 10 years).
