VISIONS OF ARCADIA at the Philadelphia Museum of Art

The Large Bathers, 1906, Paul Cézanne, French, Oil on canvas
Philadelphia Museum of Art

WRTI's Susan Lewis explores how the idea of "utopia" captivated the imaginations of early 20th-century artists, as the Philadelphia Museum of Art opens its new exhibition: Gauguin, Cezanne, Matisse: Visions of Arcadia.

At the heart of the show are three monumental canvases, each an acknowledged masterpiece and each, in its own distinctive way, a powerful response to the Arcadian tradition: Paul Cézanne’s enigmatic The Large Bathers; Paul Gauguin’s Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?; and Henri Matisse’s Bathers by a River.
