Thursday Doors – Museum Doors

old versus new

My twenty-third  entry to Norms Thursday Doors. Museum doors.  Old versus new. The door on the left is inside the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag. I visited the museum to see an exhibition of Pieter Mondriaan, one of the most prominent Dutch artists of the 20th century and world-famous for his painting Victory Boogie Woogie

The door on the right is somewhat older and is the entrance to Museum Gouda, a former hospital since 1.609.  A lot has changed in a few (hundred) years …

  1. The one (arch way) on the right is some door. I think it must have been a nice hospital as well. 🙂

      Thanks. It’s almost a theme apart: shopwindows today and in the past etc. etc.

    The one of the left if framed perfectly – very nice shot. The one on the right however; well that’s just breathtaking with all of it’s ornate detail work!
    Wonderful post Geert 🙂

  5. Geert, the contrast between these two is striking: completely simple and modern on one side, old and ornate on the other. I love that you presented these together like this.
