Art Links For 10/04/2010

Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne, and Beyond
On Thursday (9/30/2010), I went to the exhibit at the de Young Museum in San Francisco which featured Post-Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay.  I was completely blown away with all the great art I had never seen close up before.  The exhibit lighting was exceptional too because it made the vivid colors seem to glow.  If you happen to be in the SF Bay area, I would strongly recommend checking this exhibit out. 

Here's just a sample of the paintings that knocked my sox off:

Vincent van Gogh - Starry Night over the Rhone (1888)

The painting below is huge (at least 6 feet high).  The colors are much more vivid than in the image below, but it is the closest to the painting that I could muster on Google.  I had never seen or heard of the painting before, but the beauty of Madame Roger Jourdain is just stunning.  She was the muse of other artists of the period as well.

Albert Besnard - Madame Roger Jourdain (1886)

Paul Gauguin - Arearea (Joyousness) (1892)

Henri Rousseau - The Snake Charmer (1907)  This is a huge painting too.

I plan on going back before the exhibit is over.  Also, I've got to go Paris and visit the Musée d’Orsay before I kick the bucket.
