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

Completely charmed by Robert Delaunay but mostly impressed by Rousseau.Arcadia is a dream that doesn't need any basement to be built.... Rousseau, by imaging it from A to Z, totally understood the aim of Arcadia.Great exhibition,without art, life would be a mistakeGuillaume

The exhibition reveals Arcadia as an artistic theme as vital today as it has been throughout the ages. The notion of Arcadia leads us to the source of our dreams, perhaps even to the center of our being where all is tranquil and harmonious. When we see it, we remember it because it's where we come from; we yearn for it as a place to which we some day will return. Arcadia is always with us -- art is the lens which enables us to see it.

My version of Arcadia is where everybody has to work.

My version of Arcadia is where Nobody has to work and things magically appear.

I loved seeing the exhibit when it wasn't overly crowded. I had not knownwhat to expect, so I was surprised and delighted. Being of the Woodstock generation, and a product of American TV, I could not look at all the nakedness without thinking of X-rated modern entertainment; alas, my earlier self, steeped in Latin and Greek classics, has become a hollow empty vessel. Nevertheless, I thank goodness that humanity can still talk about and enjoy and revisit the idea of Arcadia while inhabiting a cynical era.

I loved this exhibition following a theme instead of just one painter! Iy is a very well done exposition following the theme or Arcadia with different famous styles of of painting form the 19th-early 20th century from very important and famous painters. I really love the fact that one could follow the theme and different painters very well. It was very well explained and easy to follow for an not art expert. I loved listening of music from that time period or related to the theme and/or painters. I also likes the fact that one could get extra information with the audio guide or just simply follow the course of the exhibition.

Russians and Germans should stick to novels and symphonies, as their paintings can't compete with the French and Spanish...

If Arcadia is to be defined as a place, then it is one of a sublime tranquility with inhabitants who's facial expressions show they are not at peace. They emote a dour disposition and will only be happy with the assistance of wine and song.

My vision of Arcadia is sort of like Central Park. It's a little spot of tranquility in busy New York.
