kunst museum basel

This morning we made a trip to the Kunst Museum in Basel to visit our friends:
Cezanne, Manet, Klee, Picasso, Van Gogh, Degas ... i could name drop for hours. I definitely recommend a trip if you are in Basel.
My new favorite is the artist who did the above image -  Gerhard Richter.  
We even bought a print for home.

When JB and I first started dating we would go to art museums.  He would let me look for hours ... while he would sit patiently waiting.  I'm so proud of him because today he was genuinely interested in art.  He took more time with the exhibits than even I did!  So ladies ... sometimes men do change.  when it comes to art anyway- i have concrete evidence (:
