AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

Happy birthday, Cézanne.

Cézanne, Arbres et Maisons au Bord de l'Eau, 1893


Paul Cézanne was born on this day in 1839.

Surely, a single bunch of carrots painted naively, just as we personally see it, is worth all the endless banalities of the Schools, all those dreary pictures concocted out of tobacco juice according to time-honored formulas?

The day is coming when a single carrot, freshly observed, will set off a revolution.
