If you plan on visiting Sweden, then don’t miss the chance to go to the National Museum of Stockholm. I stumbled across some of their pictures on Flicker, and thought you would find them as interesting as I have.  Fotograf Alex Hinchcliffe’s photostream shows a photo with a model in one of the rooms.   This museum would be a wonderful place to spend the day.

Artists such as Rembrandt, Rubens, Goya, Renoir, and Degas are common as The National Museum contains about 16,000 collections of paintings and sculptures.  They feature artwork from the late Middle Ages up to the beginning of the 20th century,  and the French 18th century collection is regarded as one of the best in the world. The Royal Castles Collections were owned by the State, and today many of the collections appear at the  National Museum.  Enjoy paintings, engravings, drawings and sculptures that once existed in Gripsholm, Drottningholm, Strömsholm, Rosersberg and Ulriksdal.

Check out the beautiful wall colors and the patterned floor.  The marble pedestal and the white color of the sculpture provide a great contrast.  The classic gold paintings look terrific against the blue walls.
