family reunion


When Bazille’s Family Reunion was accepted by the Salon in 1869, he said it was probably admitted “by mistake.”

Yeah, no offense Baz, but SHEESH, this is the most rigid set of family members I have ever seen in a composition.

I will say that I witness a similar scene in just about every room I enter, but not in that “hey, glad you’re here!” kinda way…more like the, “yeah, we’ve been talking ’boutchu” kinda way.
