Cezanne and Beyond

The best place to see world-famous art is right in Philadelphia!

"Cezanne And Beyond" is a career retrospective on French master Paul Cezanne, and the artists he inspired.

It opens Thursday and runs through May 17th only at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

The museum and the Barnes Foundation together own more Cezanne works than you'd find in his homeland of France, believe it or not. Now, other collectors from around the world have loaned works for this special exhibition.

The museum's restaurant offers a special menu for the exhibit, with dishes inspired by Cezanne's art. There are 20 French wines newly added to the menu, and an exclusive cocktail, "Le Luxe", which adds raspberry-flavored Chambord to the French black currant classic Kir Royale.

You need special tickets for the Cezanne exhibit. They are available at the museum box office, by phone at (215) 235-7469, or from the Cezanne and Beyone website.
