Berlin - Altes Museum
In the spring I was with my twin sister on the Museum Island. I always try to look at a museum when I'm in their city. The cultural landscape there is just wonderful - and I as a budding museologist must take as many good museums in Germany as possible. After all, in a few years' time, I want to be able to keep an eye out for exhibitions and everything that goes into public relations for a museum. That's why I'm always happy to look back on my role as a visitor and not a future employee, and I'm amazed at the diversity of Berlin's museums. The Altes Museum von Schinkel houses the collection of antiques, the art of the Romans, Greeks and Etruscans. I could not take enough pictures, so much did the sculptures touch and inspire me. This richness of detail, the facial expressions, the gestures of the figures are simply unique. And then only the folds of clothing (a focus of my first semester in art history), are a true dream.
Well, I digress. I just wanted to share a few of the pictures with you and maybe get one or the other to look at some old art. For the fact that the sculptures, statuettes and cabaret are just as 2,000 years old, has preserved some amazingly well. It makes me happy in a few years to be allowed to work in a collection with such objects maybe once.
