Something solid and lasting, like the art in the museums

Southwest Floridians can't resist photographic this sculpture in the Orsay's central hall.

August 19, 2017 -- Paul Cezanne said, "I want to make of impressionism something solid and lasting, like the art in the museums."  He was the leader of the pack of post-impressionistic painters, the one that Matisse and Picasso called "the father of us all."

We went to see the special exhibition of portraits by Cezanne at the Musee D'Orsay yesterday.  The museum was mobbed (especially the galleries with Impressionist paintings), but the Cezanne exhibit crowd was tolerable.

Mostly, I was impressed by the portraits and the fact that they came together for this wonderful show from museums and collections all over the world.

Here's an entire photo album of my pictures for the day.  Enjoy!
