Barnes Foundation

A few weeks ago we went to the Barnes Foundation. Besides its collection, a special exhibition was on show: The World Is an Apple: The Still Lifes of Paul Cézanne

I found a great quote by Cézanne, on one of the walls. As the guard did not allow me to make photo’s, not even of the texts, on the wall, I had to write it by hand. It was a bit frustrating at first, but Ivar made a nice sketch of me while doing so on his phone:
