It’s a woman’s world
Who are those mighty, stately, rich, beautiful, courageous, graceful and wise women? Their portraits, sculptures and installations are exhibited in different departments of the museum, from the “dark “Middle Ages department to the colorful Flower power period. From the seductive Indian goddess to the rebellious 20th century woman artist – all of them have a special story to tell. We invite you to meet some of these special women: encounters you will never forget.
