Post-Impressionists at the de Young

The de Young museum is holding a special exhibit featuring Post-Impressionist masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay, and of course I had to go.  Though not a huge fan of (romantic) Impressionists, I do love their later phase with vivid colors, thick applications of paint in bold brush strokes, and fusing realism with geometric forms; in other words, I love van Gogh.  Here’s “Starry Night Over the Rhone,” a less dramatic piece compared to The Starry Night” at the NY MoMA, but I think this piece should be appreciated in its own — stars twinkling one peaceful evening — an impression in one’s mind that photos cannot capture:

I’m glad my fiance enjoys and appreciates art. I can drag him with me to any gallery and he’d be happy.  Maybe because he’s with me. ;)
