Nuremberg Toy Museum

Photo taken by Vladimir Tkalčić. I realize I’m going a bit off the derech here by posting images of toys and glamour shots rather than art– my apologies since this is an art blog primarily. However, I am also a closet toy collector and when I saw this photo I had to post it.


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    Work like that, good in itself with detail, provides a knowledge of European life centuries ago. I have toured Plymouth Plantation and seen and felt to a minor degree what the Pilgrims endured in 1620. If it was 5 degrees Fahrenheit outside the home, it was 5 degrees within. We take some pride (as infants in our history) with settings like that. However, I was slapped back to reality when German tourists walked by and realized that their ancestors were brewing Lowenbrau centuries before 1620.

    I should think that you get to post whatever you want. It’s your blog, whether others like it or not! 😛 (Love the image! There’s something about toy sized buildings that makes me smile. I don’t really know why.) 🙂
