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


I love the "share your vision" at the end!I also liked the sculpture of the three graces!

I wished I could have enjoyed it more but the galleries were way more crowded than other exhibits here I've seen. I couldn't move or get to the placards to read them. There wasn't as good a flow as I've seen before. I guess I will have to look up the paintings in books and on line to really see them.

A very thought provoking and beautiful exhibit. Any relationship between Arcadia and Acadia?

very well curated and laid out. I would have liked more written comments next to more paintings, I got a lot out of what was there. Maybe not have so much written on paintings that have recorded comments? But overall, what a great show!

An interesting show...but I don't believe it is better than the Phila Art Museum permanent collection of Post-Impressionist works.

THe gallery is quite crowded. People of all ages are standing in knots, in rapt attention. It is utterly silent. Everyone is listening to the same narrative on their headsets. As one of only a very small number in the room without - it is one of the creepiest experiences imaginable and far from Arcadian.

LOVELY, BREATHTAKING WORKS OF ART. SO ENJOYED THE BIG THREE BUT ALSO THE OTHER ARTIST SHOWN HERE AS WELL. ARCADIA IS SOME PLACE WE ALL WANT TO BE. IT WOULD BE NICE IF WE COULD WALK INTO SOME OF THESE PAINTINGS. LIKED THE CUBISM THE BEST.

I found it interesting that Francis Marc didn't think that Humans belonged in Arcadia.

I was very moved as I entered the large room and saw paintings by Cezanne, Rousseau, Picasso, Gauguin, Matisse, and Poussin, all addressing visions of Arcadia, and having all of this genius in the same room. I found the exhibit to be engaging, interesting, and very well done. Of course the staff did their usual fine job and made the entire experience a joy.

I want to be a new train driver and coloring in the back of the caboose. No stitch. My favorite painting was about the boats at the beach. My favorite color is green and red.
