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

No one is wearing clothing because of budget cuts

Once I find Arcadia I will be sure to keep it to my family and friends. It would surely be ruined by the masses.

I thought the paintings were very interesting even though there were pictures of naked people

I saw the visages as masturbation male fantasy. Lots of babes in the buff with brush wielding voyeurs.

Isn't neo-impressionism a form of escapism to into nature? Kinda like Lucy in the sky with diamonds to Lennon.

If life was like Arcadia we all would have no worries, and every thing would have it's own unique drop of sun shine.

Arcadia is sunshine, good times with family, and fond memories of loved ones.

The dreamy and pure, the innocent breeze that we anticipate to breathe. Arcadia is a dream that came to be.

I thoroughly enjoyed this exhibit. Beautifully curated in a wonderful space. I love how the relationships among artists of different times came together around a common theme. The exhibit made me think of a painting (whose artists's name I can't remember) of two dressed men and a woman nude at a picnic. It was very scandalous at the time but has since been accepted as a great work of art. One might think that its theme may have also been influenced by Arcadia.I am from Boston and came all the way here to see this exhibit after reading about it. It was just exceptional.

My vision of Arcadia is no health problems, eating chips every day, and doing whatever I want to do.

It would have been useful to now more about The Eclogues, why Virgil wrote them, what they were, why they were popular in France and when, and how artists came to know them. It would also be useful to know how popular the term ARcadia was, and when.

The art was good but the headphones could have been better.

Does Seurat's pointilism prefigure what we know today as pixels?
