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.
