In the online edition of MoMA’s ArtSpeaks program, a member of our staff shares personal impressions of an artwork in the galleries. Here, Kiko Aebi, curatorial assistant in the Department of Drawings and Prints, looks at Paul Cézanne’s Foliage and finds beauty in its dynamism—contrasting hues provide a sense of movement, while watercolor and graphite appear to dance across one another.
Explore our collection work by work as we release a new video each Friday. Watch the videos and then come visit the works in person at MoMA!
