Papa Cezanne

This morning I took K to LACMA to view the Cezanne & Pissarro exhibition. So beautiful. Overwhelmed by brushstrokes and colour play and the thought of these two men together - going against convention and creating a pictorial world of their own. My favorite were Cezanne's "The House of the Hanged Man Auvers-sur- Oise" 1873 (to think Van Gogh died in these fields only a few years later) and "View from the Jas de Bouffan" 1873-76.

I will have to bring the bugs with me to see it over the holidays. See it if you can.
