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 loved seeing the comparison of Cezanne and Poussin in the same room! Very interesting =)

I got the feeling that pachstein came very close to the style of Gauguin. It would be interesting to know the periods of each.

A rich gathering of some of the giants of their time. Warm, deep expression, and an intellectual touch surround this display. A must for not just art lovers, but for all that question 'who we are and why are we here'.

Glad to see early Picasso work. I catch his simplicity, purity and innocent in this work. Also like the latter Mattise Bathers. Its modern sense and the role as the bridge before Cubism section were impressed!

I really liked everything except the final gallery, which seemed a lame way to end such a heroic subject. Loved the cubism.

If you wish to see a real Arcadia, consider visiting Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, a 2,600 nature preserve 80 miles northwest of Philly--just 30 miles north of Reading. Just ascending the mountain by car offers a sense of wild beauty that is so missing from our built world. Then there are walking paths with views of endless mountains.

You needed better text at Arcadia. Numbers corresponding to exhibit items were not readily visible. Difficult to correlate with audio tour with obscure numbers. Better identification for the next exhibit...
