There’s less than a month left for one of the summer’s biggest shows, “Gauguin, Cezanne, Matisse: Visions of Arcadia” at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The exhibition closes on September 3. On Episode No. 32 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast, I talked with Philadelphia Museum of Art curator Joseph Rishel and Kimbell Art Museum deputy director George Shackelford about “Arcadia.”
Rishel curated the show and Shackelford, who was the head of European art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston before decamping for the Kimbell, contributed a catalogue essay on the MFAB’s great Gauguin, Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? (1897-98). Both are full of passion for their subject and tell some great stories about the art in the show and the artists who made it!
