01.25.13 for Paul / for Woody

Full disclosure: I am a former Art History major (fuller: and grad student) and a long-time Woody Allen fan.

As an art historian, this picture is full of associations for me, with Cézanne’s beautiful still life paintings topping the list. But maybe more than the paintings themselves, I love the fact that “those incredible apples and pears by Cézanne” were on the list of reasons that life is worth living for Allen’s character, Isaac, in the film Manhattan.

Bon appetit!
