An extraordinary loan from the Philadelphia Museum of Art gives you the opportunity to see two French masterpieces hanging side by side: Paul Cézanne’s The Large Bathers and the MFA’s own Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going? by Paul Gauguin. Both paintings address a classical tradition of representing the idealized nude in an idyllic landscape, yet both also break with convention, conjuring radically new visions of earthly paradise. These works form a bridge from the 19th to 20th century and influenced a generation of modern artists that included Picasso and Matisse. 

Link: MFA.
