From the Wikipedia: (Turkish: Resim ve Heykel Müzesi) is a museum dedicated to fine arts and sculpture in Ankara, Turkey. It was designed in 1927 by architect Arif Hikmet Koyunoğlu and built between 1927 and 1930 as the Türkocağı Building, upon the direction of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder and first President of Turkey.
In a decent museum the taking of pictures should not be forbidden. In the wonderful Istanbul Modern museum in the city of that name it is forbidden. To my delight no such nonsense was thrown at the visitor to the museum for sculptures and paintings in Ankara. I did not have time enough to pay attention to the sculpture, but I can show some nice examples of paintings, many by artists whose style I knew from the Istanbul Modern.
I had to do a lot of perspective controlling, you may notice I sometimes had to “cut the painting out of its frame”, sometimes showing a bit of that frame (or even the name tag), rather than cut the painting itself. I think in most cases perspective is correct. As for colour, that is always a problem, there are some traces of glare, but I did not use any correcting for saturation or colour, so some pictures may be off colour. So as not to downgrade them too much I did not cut their sizes of the paintings as much as I usually do, so pictures are relatively large when using the "original" view.
I returned with even better equipment in June 2012, with a lot of pictures as a result (some doubles of previous ones, some new). And in 2014 another camera took some more, some doubles again. If in Ankara, do visit this museum and its neighbour, the ethnography museum, both deserve inspection. In the latter photography is, well, not forbidden, but you are invited to not do it. Well, you know my opinion.
