    One of my old friends is a painter and he seemed most impressed with the Prado, the Rijksmuseum (or however you spell it... Been Amsterdam a few times, never made it outside the coffee shops though. Have no idea what the place looks like) and, Ghent, some place in Ghent.

    The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam is great, and the Van Gogh museum. Bonus points cos you're in Amsterdam so you can walk around stoned out of your skull and have a mushroom trip after in the park.

    I've tried Tate Modern on acid and it doesn't work curiously. National gallery works great. Tate Britain works pretty good too. Tate modern is sort of a fake gallery.

    Apparently a fav in National Gallery. Brought to my attention through Chris Watson. I can see the musical/soundscape quality.

    Joaquín Sorolla - Sad Inheritance, 1899. Crippled children bathing at the sea in Valencia; in the center the image of two children affected by polio (Bancaja Collection).

    The Spanish master of light. Similar to the ending of Cobra Verde?

    What other galleries need to be visited worldwide? Aside from the Louvre.
    Didn't see this before, will add a couple:

    Thyssen-Bornemiza in Madrid - amazing selection of early 20th century paintings, if you're into that kind of thing (which I am). Probably the best gallery I've been to.
    Reina Sofia, again in Madrid - fantastic selection of Spanish and South American art, also Guernica.

    Haven't been there, but the Savitsky Museum in Nukus, Uzbekistan must be one of the most surprising of world galleries: https://lithub.com/visiting-a-secret...-uzbek-desert/

    Van Gogh Museum (in Amsterdam) was a bit of a let-down, didn't have as much as I'd've expected (but maybe makes sense in the wider context of the art world, private collectors, cultural power of museums in NY/London/Paris etc).
