1) The Dutch know how to really paint alive.
2) Every sculpture seemed to bear more than a passing resemblance to this one sculpted blob called Lunar Bird. It got to a point that my father and I would walk around a hunk of bronze, look thoughtfully, and declare, "It's Lunar Bird!" in unison. I told my mom she ought to add a final multiple choice question for her field trip kids:
How many sculptures look like Lunar Bird?
a) All of them.
b) Too many.
c) Far too many.
d) Everything in the world now looks like Lunar Bird - Gah! Run away, run away!
e) All of the above.
Odds are she won't include it. But it's a nice thought.
