Whilst in Cologne I visited the modern art gallery, Museum Ludwig. Which includes works from Pop Art, Abstract and Surrealism and has one of the largest Picasso collections in Europe. I loved seeing the work of Roy Lichenstein, Andy Walhol and Picasso close up… so close you could see the brush marks, cracked paint and sometimes the drawing underneath. I also saw, for the first time, some of the mad and marvelous work of Claes Oldenburg, I especially loved his collection of ray guns and things that look like ray guns.
