Alberto Giacometti, Femmes de Venise, 1956

Who knew that Denmark had a MOMA (Museum Of Modern Art)? I had no idea but found it to be true as I visited Louisiana, located in Humlebæk.

At first sight, the gallery looked extremely small, like any other house but inside art quickly filled up the rooms and gardens. Both underneath the house and the garden outside, lay numerous floors not revealed at first glance. Not only did I see works by renowned artists such as Pablo Picasso, Roy Lichtenstein but also Tai R to mention a few.

At the gallery’s cafe a seagull managed to snag a sandwich off an unsuspecting victim who was enjoying his lunch outside. Much to my surprise, this event proved more interesting to the many visitors than the vast collection of art.

Staying en garde, I took a quick break in order to enjoy a tart aux fraise before returning home. Yum!
