Nelson House and Everything Cezanne
A 12 x 24 oil of the Nelson House with a view across the Delaware River at Washington's Crossing.
Another excerpt from the Cezanne biography: "Out sur le motif he mused on the fundamental. 'All that we see dissipates and disappears, does it not? Nature is always the same, but nothing remains of what we see of it. It is our art that must convey the sense of permanence, capture the elements in all their changing forms. It should give us a taste of the eternal. What lies beneath? Perhaps nothing. Perhaps everything. Everything, you understand?'"
