Museums are not for everyone. But I love to go to this temple of art and look at the old and modern paintings, - and of course particularly the visitors.
Today's photo was taken in the Neue Pinakothek in Munich.
I see the art scene completely neutral and without any evaluative comment.
The painting in the background - a triptych - is by Hans von marees.

a superbly creative and wonderfully expressive shot this. Works so well in this medium and I admire your imagination and accomplished execution here. An original, compelling and powerful piece of imagery. Well done!

Visitor passing by, sculpture watching visitor. A quietly humorous photo that I like. Thanks for sharing,

Tu as l'oeil mon cher ami. La situation est très comique et vraiment bien mise en image.J'aime le léger flou chez l'humain qui semble se sauver à toute vitesse.

Very nice shot with good POV look right into the most important part :)
Love the coversion to b&w. Timeless and the the painting behind is Cezanne, I think.

fantastico scatto, ricco di humour e di belle opere.
La statua sembra chidersi perché la persona cammina senza osservare ciò che è esposto.

What a brilliant observation as well as this capture! I also love to go to museums not only for admiring art but also taking shots. Excellent work! Well done.

Hello Wolfgang - A wonderful moment frozen in time. I get the distinct impression that the sculpture is looking rather wistfully at the passerby.
Warm regards Rosemary

Hi Wolfgang. Another multi-layered image where persons in stone and on canvas seem to come alive in the presence of a passing visitor.I keep admiring your imaginative approach to photography. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Combined a few subjects here Wolfgang, but looks at first sight that the statue is watching the people at the museum...
Light condition maybe taken you to post a B&W photo, yet a well done job.
Have a nice weekend,
