Paul Cézanne...

Taking a break from holiday packing, yesterday afternoon I went with my Mum, Dad and niece Charlotte to The Courtauld Gallery in Somerset House to see the special Paul Cézanne exhibition.

As it says in the blurb, it is "a small gallery that has one of the world's finest collections of Impressionist paintings." And I can't argue with that. For me the high point of the Cézanne was The Card Players.

We also stole a look at some of the other gems in the gallery. Of note were; Manet's Bar at the Folies-Bergère, one of the two versions of Le Déjeuner sur l'Herbe, Van Gogh's Self-portrait with Bandaged Ear and Gaugin's Nevermore.

Here are some snaps I took.
