Rijksmuseum

I finally made it to the refurbished Rijksmuseum.  Here I am outside with Henry Moore’s Large Reclining Figure (1983) on loan from the Henry Moore Foundation in Perry Green.  Made of white fibreglass, Moore’s sculpture is over 9 metres long and weighs 2,000 kilos.

The main museum building was designed by Pierre Cuypers and first opened its doors in 1885.P1060629

But enough about the museum.  Even better is the delicious broodje haring.
