“Compared to Me, All My Compatriots Were Idiots” – Cezanne Art Appreciation with the COA

Of all the famous artists whose canvases I contemplated during many a childhood afternoon at a New York or Chicago museum, Monsieur Cézanne is an Owl family favorite.

You can’t say that Weston doesn’t try.

Those of you without heads under rocks might
