Nationalmuseum, Stockholm

Thumbs-up to my dad, so hell-bent on getting rid of this heavy old book he carried it with him from Sweden to Paris last spring, claiming it was a gift for me.

Nationalmuseum itself is one of my Top Five most boring museums ever - the only art museum in that category, otherwise inhabited by war museums I have been dragged to - and this book clearly displays why; Swedish 16th and 17th century art (baroque and romanticism... my so not-favourites...) plus some minor works by major artists, all of which seem pretty insignificant to me.

There are a couple of Dutch Golden Age artworks that are quite unobjectionable, but the book as a whole... 

Way to go, dad.
