PMA First Sunday

Today I went to the PMA for the Pay What you Wish first Sunday. It was pretty crowded but good to stroll through with friends plus I haven't been since about April. I sort of miss certain paintings there when I don't see them for a little while. These old favorites include:

Vuillard's prints

Monet's Morning Haze

Van Gogh's Portrait of Mme Roulin and Baby

Soutine's Girl in Green
The pieces that were my best new discovery for the day were Eakins' sketches. I've always known he was a very good painter but never had much of a reaction to the work until today. I liked these pieces because they are unassuming, I can feel the casualness of his brush and the subtlety in his color is beautiful.
