Where is Norton Simon Museum?
The Norton Simon Museum, a relatively small but important art museum, is located on the western edge of downtown Pasadena and along the route of the famous Rose Parade.
The path from the parking lot through the green areas is already lined with world-class sculptures (e.g. by Rodin and Moore); the second part of this exhibition can be found behind the entrance building in the picturesque sculpture garden.
The focus of the collection is on European painting, from the 14th century to modernism. In addition to Highlights such as Adam and Eve by Lukas Cranach, Botticelli’s Maria mit dem Kind and Canaletto’s Piazetta, works by Rubens, Van Gogh, Rembrandt and Picasso and many Impressionists will be shown. In addition, the Museum has an impressive collection of Asian art.
Despite the worth seeing pictures and sculptures, the presentation seemed very cool to me; compared to other museums in the Los Angeles area, which use much more imagination in the interior design and also score points with extraordinary architecture, the appropriate frame and atmosphere are often missing here.
