Inside the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Arts Building 1 Aug 30

The gallery had quite a nice collection of early Twentieth Century Art.  This guy greeted us as we entered.

I am quite partial to the Surrealists, so I was very happy to see a few recognizable friends in the gallery.

For example I adore Yves Tanguy and there were two there.

And what is not to love about De Chirico's messed up perspectives!

They had this recognizable Dali.

...and this is by Bonnard. I was really quite taken by the colors.

and everyone recognizes this guy's blue period.

They had transported Paolozzi's studio in toto to the museum.

It was fun to look at all the objects that he collected (and it made me feel a little bit better about my own sad collecting habit! ;-)

I really learned a new appreciation for Vuillard also and have since seen several of his images that have really captured my imagination.

There was a second building nearby with more contemporary offerings, so we exited the neo-classical building and took a turn around the grounds before heading to the other building.

There  was a lovely Henry Moore in the back of the building and the fountain/pond below was designed as a pat of the museum landscape.
