Take your Mind off Politics for a Moment

Renoir rendered this radiant landscape of the Seine just west of Paris with carefully differentiated brushwork, from the long, feathery strokes of the waving grasses to small, thick touches for the flowering trees. The artist wrote to a friend at the time of the painting, “I’m struggling with trees in flower, with women and children, and I don’t want to look at anything else.” #HeartArt

Pictured: “The Seine at Chatou,” (1881).

We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.
