There’s a little bit of glamour in all of us. Or so some of us like to think. Usually, that glamour finds expression in private moments as we gaze into the bathroom mirror freshly made up or if we catch our reflection in a storefront window on a particularly good day.
Im kicking myself for ignoring my initial impulse to visit the Hermitage Foundation in Lausane “no matter what” when their current exhibition Canada and Impressionism opened there in late January. Being Canadian and a fanatic for almost all things Impressionism I knew I’d be Impressed (excuse the pun) by the collection of a hundred paintings by Canadian painters, which has been loaned to the Hermitage largely by the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa.
