Travel Pro Art #48: Museum of Western and Eastern Art in Odessa Ukraine! Part Two (10 photos)

World Travel Pro @world-travel-proNovember 2018 · 3 min read

Hey there my Steemit friends! In this Travel Pro Series we explore art from around the world! The past few years of travel I've really started to become a true fan of the arts. Since walking around is my favorite thing to do, street art probably is my favorite form of art to see! However we'll be exploring art museums, street performances, live music, traditional dance, even laser light shows in this Travel Pro Series!

Recently I had the chance to wander the halls of the Museum of Western and Eastern Art in Odessa Ukraine. I was thoroughly impressed with the quality and amount of art on display. Unlike a modern art museum, visiting this place was like taking step back in time.

The museum was so big I only had time to see half of it. So I chose the Western side, which focused on are from Europe. It highlighted the works of the Dutchman Frans Hals ("St. Luke, Evangelist" and "St. Matthew, Evangelist"), works of Genoese Alessandro Manyasko, Francesco Guardi, and Pier Minyar, court artist of Louis XIV of France.

So much of the art depicted life long ago. Many of the paintings were 200 to 400 years old. The marble sculptures were very impressive. The detail in all of the art here was quite remarkable. I may have gone overboard photographing so many things, but here is an extensive 12 post Travel Pro Art series highlighting some of the best art from this part of the world!

With over 12 years of travel experience I answer travel and international lifestyle questions. Leave a question in the comments and I may make a Steemit post just for you!
