Share your vision of Arcadia.

"May the day come-and perhaps soon-when I can flee to the woods on a South Sea island, and live there in ecstasy, in peace and for art."

~ Gauguin to his wife, Mette, February 1890


it was interesting, some of the paintings were very colorful and pretty ;)

i liked that different artists had different styles of painting. Different artists also had different visions of Arcadia.

each picture reminded me of another. it was like each artist was looking at the pictures as they were drawing

This was a terrific exhibit. At first I thought the theme seemed a little contrived but by the end I was convinced it was a brilliant way to tie all these paintings together. I particularly liked the room with Cezanne's Bathers -- the way all those paintings in that room led from one to the other was so interesting!

I was really excited to be able to see these paintings in person and appreciate the craftsmanship that went into building the images. I loved being able to get into the works' personal space and see all the underpainting and pentimenti. With that said, there were far too many people in the galleries acting like audio tour zombies, blocking everyone's view. It was impossible to see the larger paintings from any point in the room because they were blocked by the crowds. It was very frustrating.

I was surprised by the title of the exhibition, since many of the paintings did not suggest luxuriance, peace, serenity at all. At some point, the signage seemed to suggest that the dominant organizing theme was bathing. And that did seem more pervasive than the images of Arcadia.

I found the exhibit to be very interesting and enjoyable. Some of the other artists I was not aware of were rather interesting to compare to the other more known works we saw. Overall it was really nice.

I found Corot very talented and enjoyed his painting of the Bridge at Narni very Much. I am not a big fan of Matisse and found most of his work lacking.
