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


Through the development of the Arcadian theme, I came to a bittersweet realization that the dream of paradise became most real in the most abstracted pieces. I found this especially true in the incredible and overwhelming work by Matisse of the Bathers.

I am just guessing where Arcade last nowadays. We do not look for it anymore, except for some minutes walking in art museum

this exhibition was definately informative. the paintings a sculptures are beautiful and inspiring. It always nice to take a break for everyday life and stop for a moment to gaze in awe at something greater than ourselves. To gaze upon things that are apart of history and tell an interesting story. Glad I came. thank you philadelphia museum of art!!

Offering opportunity to share one's own "vision of Arcadia" was brilliant.

It was quite different and at the same time very interesting in how the artists were intermingled and yet at the same time displayed such an awareness of what they were accomplishing to times.

Would have liked it better from home on 42 inch flat screen with a bag of cheetos. BTW the nude pictures are a bit blurry.

It was ok i did not very enjoy it. It was very boring and it was very crowded but i did like a lot of it. And for youngsters the abstract about the paintings they were nude people in the paintings but anyway i did like the headphones and how it talked to you.

I thought it was very good, but the only thing wrong was it was too short and if i were a little one i would like it but i would not get it. Also it was hard to keep up with it and i liked how they let you have headphones and u could listen and u didn't have to read every single painting.
