Why is everyone ignoring me?
To celebrate the reopening of Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum, the surrounding gardens are hosting a fabulous exhibition of Henry Moore’s sculpture.
We don’t expect to see a better collection of the work of the great British artist, not anywhere, not ever. And certainly not for free.
The garden by Amsterdam’s busiest museum is a surprisingly quiet place.
Visitors can recline almost as much as Mr Moore’s work does. This is ‘Reclining figure: arch leg’
They’re mowing the lawn to keep the sculpture looking neat.
While people queue to get into the building…
…anyone can walk around it to see Henry’s creations for nothing. This is ‘Oval with Points’.
Whether you like Henry Moore’s work or not, it’s a quiet oasis in a busy part of Amsterdam.
