Dreams & Reality

Last weekend, before Jhon left for the Philippines, we went to the Singapore National Museum for the Dreams & Reality gallery.


It show cases Masterpieces of Painting, Drawing; Photography from the Musée d’Orsay, Paris.
"From the collection of the world renowned Musée d’Orsay, over 140 Salon, Realists, Impressionists and Post-Impressionists paintings, photographs and drawings from the mid-19th century to the early 20th century will specially tour to Singapore this year"

The gallery is open until 5th February. You can buy your tickets here. BUT if you are an NTUC card member, you get to enter for FREE and your friends/family will get a discount!

Before we headed to the museum, we at breakfast at KFC at Funan. Yummy!


This is the first time I have ever been to a famous art gallery. I won't deny that I feel very 'atas'. hehe



This is one of my favorite painting on the gallery. I simply love the shades, story and feelings it portrays and the remarkable details.



The details of the next few paintings are wonderful. They look like photographs.



These are photographs and/or glass negatives.
See the bottom left corner of the picture? Look at the curtains. WTF? hahaha


Love this painting.



It's Aang from the Legend of the last air bender! kidding!





The famous painting practically everyone knows. Starry Night by the Rhode by Van Gogh.




Towards the end of the gallery, there is an interactive space where there are books and art paper for you to draw your own rendition of any of the artworks displayed. We initially did not know about it which explains the drawing of the eye.


I think Jhon did quite a good job.
The gallery was wonderful and to be surrounded by such masterpieces was breathtaking. Of course, I felt sour at the same time because my standard drawing is equivalent to a primary school student. Although i try to make it up with crafts.

I strongly recommend it to all art lovers.

    1. Well, art is subjective. As long as you can appreciate art as itself, it is already good enough =)
