It’s inevitable, when in the south of France, to find oneself in an Art gallery, to imagine what having a particular work of Art might
do for one’s soul, or to contemplate whether or not to indulge oneself. Regardless, the experience of close looking and imagining is often enough to, in Rodin’s words, make one “tremble.”
The French have an incredible sense of design, and they are thoughtful about how they orchestrate even the basics. At the local markets, the clothing is categorized according to hue, flowers by variety, and fruits and vegetables displayed as virtual still lifes. Color abounds.
Looking forward to the next blog~ Vincent Van Gogh at Saint-Paul Mausole, healing through Art, and new research on how Art impacts young minds.
