Philadelphia Museum of Art.

I was back to my hometown of Philadelphia for part of a week's vacation.

I'm still trying to decide if "Cezanne and Beyond" was worth the $24 admission. I did learn a lot about Cezanne through the somewhat pedantic and precious audio tape commentary. I didn't know his influence was so wide and deep. The exhibition was intelligently arranged around five or six themes. Most of the exhibits came from other museums.

I suppose I will have to wait until the book falls a little more in price.

We have a Burne-Jones exhibit in Toronto just now. It will probably cost $20 just to visit, but what the heck.

In art terms, a visit to a Cezanne exhibit is like a trip to a very well-stocked tea parlour with wonderful desserts.

For all of the self indulgence, it is still cheaper than a trip to Paris. I'll bet you will remember this for some time to come.

    What is texture?
    Texture goes beyond mere pattern or form into something more complex and organic that you could touch, feel and maybe even identify with your eyes closed if your hand were big or small enough. These are visual representations of a non-visual sense: touch.
