This one goes out to my Twitter friend @KnitSix, who also likes Cezanne.

This Cezanne painting is breathtaking, even as an image on a web page. You feel exactly the beauty of seeing that same scene for yourself.

Cezanne painted the view from his hotel room. What’s so fascinating, of course, is that you could take a photo of the same view from the same hotel room, and it could be a marvelous photo, but still not communicate the emotional meaning of Cezanne’s painting.
