Gauguin, Cézanne, Matisse: Visions of Arcadia; exhibition explores this classical theme | Art You Need | Scoop.it

"B PHILADELPHIA, PA.- / The dream of Arcadia, a mythic place of beauty and repose where humankind lives in harmony with nature, has held an enduring appeal for artists since antiquity. With its promise of calm, simplicity, and order, it has served as both an inspiration—the sought for, but never fulfilled ideal of a paradise here on earth—and as an image of refuge, a place that is distant and seemingly protected from the vicissitudes of life."
