I’d been looking forward to seeing the Gauguin paintings ever since the Seattle Art Museum announced the exhibit last year. But I have to say I was disappointed. Too many of the works in this show were so drab chromatically, lacking the vibrant colors I associate with Gauguin’s works. The information about the artist’s life and time in the south Pacific was fascinating but many of the specific items in this exhibit just didn’t strike my fancy.
Still, it was a nice way to spend a chilly February morning and I had delicious blueberry pancakes for lunch afterwards at the Fonte Cafe.
