Features From My Visit to: The Toledo Museum of Art - #20

TMA (Toledo Museum of Art) is one of my favorite places in Toledo, Ohio.  I first visited this beautiful museum when I was in high school in Canada.  I grew up in the Windsor area and I was privileged to go to a high school with an advanced art program.  We actually visited the TMA twice throughout my high school career.  I had no idea when I was a teenager that I would actually marry an American and then settle in the Toledo area!  I now visit my favorite museum once a year.

I will be featuring a few pieces from the TMA each month.

“The Glade”
(Oil on canvas)
By Paul Cezanne (French 1839-1906)

Today is the second time that I am featuring an Impressionist work of art, which happens to be my favorite style (Impressionism).  This style of art began after the camera was invented and Impressionism captures split second, everyday life of normal people or simple everyday scenery.  If you were to quickly open and close your eyes - it's that fuzzy snapshot of that one second that is depicted in these masterpieces.

Paul Cezanne inherited his father's estate in Aix-en-Provence (southern France) and this is what he said about the beautiful countryside in that area: "There are treasures to be taken away from this country, which has not yet found an interpreter worthy of the riches it offers."
Paul Cezanne spent two decades painting the country scenes of that area.
