I was particularly taken with these images by Édouard Manet featured the other day over on my father's art blog Spencer Alley. They made me realize again something I apparently need to realize over and over again, which is that I actually do really like Impressionism -- I just need to see paintings I haven't already seen a million times before in order to access a pure and fresh enjoyment of their lovely and revolutionary qualities (as opposed to the masterpieces that have been so cliche-ified by coffee mugs and mouse pads and dentist office framed posters that it's nearly impossible to actually see them at all).
