I knew nothing of this artist prior to our trip. It was other reviews that led us to give it a try. His collections will, in turn, alarm you and excite you!

The tour of the home and studio was great. Beautiful space and a great guide. The museum itself had some great pieces but had space for so much more than was there.

Some of the artwork was reminiscent of Picasso's Guernica. Apparently the artist has a large variety of work but this museum is dedicated to man's inhumanity to man.
