Post-Impressionism at the De Young

The names of the painters at the exhibit read like a roll call of Post-Expressionist art. The paintings gleam with orange and yellow hues, shimmer with pointillist delicacy or fill with canvas with thick ribbons of charged paint. There's a lot that can be said - and will be written - about the show, about each artist, about the lineage, the history and the inheritance of each painter.  But for now, simply enjoy a few of the images. They don't do justice to the real thing and viewing the real thing is right here, right now, in SF.
