Fun in Philly

Philadelphia fun this weekend has included a trip to the Museum of Art and a surprise. It has also included more heat and humidity than I’m happy to cope with in April, and the disappointment of not seeing the Cézanne exhibition to which I was so looking forward. We were at the museum in the morning, and the next entry time for which there were tickets available was 4pm.

But enter and enjoy the museum we did anyway. We went, not only to the main museum, but also to the Perelman Building. Some of the gallery space there is currently devoted to an exhibition of Henri Matisse and Modern Art on the French Riviera. The painting is by Dufy, and shows the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, along which I promenaded many times when I lived near there.

In the afternoon, we were fortunate enough to stumble across Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, a much-mosaic’d house and courtyard. You can see my ***** review at Yelp.
