Note how your breathing changes as you enter this sanctuary where every thing human hands can make
beautifully stands trial. Trust your first impressions:
Light does soften this world of rock into a vision
by Monet. You can believe in Renoir's grapes, translucent
muscadine, and peaches heaped like harvest moons in an earthen
bowl. Gather courage in C'ezanne's ordered spaces: Frail walls
of blue and burnt sienna can hold off chaos and do. Free fall
at last into a net of colors. Cassatt will row you home.
