National Museum, Blasieholmen, Stockholm, Sweden

When I was in Stockholm in August 2017, Sweden's National Museum building was closed for refurbishment and its exhibitions had moved to two alternative locations with restrictions on what can be put on public show. That state of affairs appears to have ended now and those collections of paintings, sculptures and other similar items are back in their usual home again.

The restoration work also meant that detail views like the above that were necessitated by the presence of scaffolding and other disfigurements are not the only approach that can be taken. Wider views are possible again but making a photo with one will need to wait for now.
