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


This was a beautiful exhibit. I wish my knowledge of French would return! Exiting on Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun was perfect.

Beautiful works- I loved the combination of impressionism and neo-impressionism from artists like Henri Cross and totally different classical styles of artists like Corot with beautiful, flowing paintings that take inspiration from beautiful countrysides in europe. What a great show! Kudos to the curators for the "create your vision of arcadia" section, however more seating/ benches should be provided in the future.

I found all these painting very interesting. They all had a vision of heaven that was full of peace and recreation. I love how all the artists were influenced by each other in different ways such as shape, color and ideas. I look forward to coming back and learning more about these artists. It was also cool how they included Virgil's poetry in Latin and German.

BRILLIANT curation!!! Thank you so much for a thoughtful, provocative, coherent, and beautiful exploration of a timeless theme. And for the extraordinary effort in obtaining the loans allowing us to 'compare and contrast'. Once in a lifetime...

once again i was devastated that the curators chose to omit any comment about the obvious AFRICANIST presence in these works. arcadia's european masters were exposed to african art and sculpture, especially in paris.

I am a 14 year old who came here with my sister and grandparents. I felt that, compared to the Barnes Foundation, this exhibition lacked in stimulation. Both my sister and I disliked the exhibition, even as we moved around and observed the artwork.

We were disappointed in the exhibition. We came to see Gauguin, Cezanne, and Matisse and we saw very few works by these artists.
