Here’s another art gallery interior that is relaxing for me to look at. This photo is calm, quiet and suggests introspection. And yet there is a naked figure “looking'” my way. And are these “real” people sitting on the bench? Or are they reproductions of people sitting on a bench?

incidentally, the three paintings on the wall facing the camera are by Gaugin, Van Gogh and Cezanne. Paul Gaugin lived my current fantasy: he packed up his paints and moved to Tahiti to paint the native women. But I can’t paint and I’m quite happy married to my native (Dutch/German/South Dakotan) woman.

Finally, if you’ve never been to the Minneapolis Institute of Art, where this photo was taken, you need to go.
