Eyes that listen
Here is something for the musicians and lovers of certain kinds of music. From Gauguin's writing in his 'Intimate Journals': 'In an exhibition on the Boulevard des Italiens I see a strange head. I do not know why something happened inside of me, why I should have heard strange melodies in front of a picture. The head of a doctor, very pale, with eyes that do not look at you, do not see, but listen. In the catalogue I read, "Wagner, by Renoir".'
