The gallery

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.

We want to hear, did we miss an angle we should have covered? Should we come back to this topic? Or just give us a rating for this story. We want to hear from you.
