Possibly the highlight of the visit to the new national museum. Not this piece in particular of the Norwegian Royal family (though, it is fun), but the older gentleman beside me who went through great pains and a salad of words to explain to the people he was there with how the picture is unworthy, has no business being there, while at the same time being extremely clear that he likes and appreciates controversial art and of course he isn't a prude.

Joking aside, very enjoyable visit. I'm no proper connoisseur of art, but the exhibits overall were a nice combination of the essential Norwegian art, as well as new stuff that was interesting. I also kind of appreciate how so much of the focus was on Norwegian artists. A nice change from other museums where you can hardly tell where you are, as the exhibits are a collection of internationally renowned greatest hits. Would recommend.
