Karin and I went to the National Museum today, we wanted to yesterday but found out they are closed on Mondays. They had two exhibitions we wanted to see. The first called “Love and Lust” was a collection of over weight Madonna paintings from the Italian renaissance and also a lot of sexually explicit prints done by Johan Sergel. Back in the late 1700’s he did a lot of satirical prints mocking the church and their conservative ideas about relationships. So he blasted back with drawings of basically every position possible for couples screwing. We bought the show catalog!

The next exhibition was called the “Four Seasons”, there they had an Anders Zorn work I had never seen before and since they allowed photos without flash, I took some. The other artist they had a lot of work from was Bruno Lilafors, he use to hang out a lot with Zorn back in the days.

The rest of the afternoon was spent wandering around the old town.

Our older boys took off with a ferryboat for one of the outer islands in the Stockholm archipelago, they plan to go camping there a night and head back tomorrow. We on the other hand will be leaving for Halsingland fairly early in the morning. So the boys will catch up later and meet us there on Friday.
