What a Pleasant Surprise

A few weeks ago I found a piece of art in the halls that I had never noticed before. It's a lovely still life painting that reminds me of Cezanne.

It's called Round Table and it was painted by George Robinson, who I believe helped found the art department here. Also, it's 51 years old! My gosh, 1960 it was painted. The textures and colors are still gorgeous today.

It's in a weird little corner at Bethel, back by the philosophy department offices, where they have a wooden sign that says "Philosophers' Corner."


  1. Hey I was born in 1960! I think my colors and textures are still gorgeous today too!!!!

    It's funny that you never noticed it before!

    See you soon.

  2. Cool! I'll have to go take a look at that.

  3. Wow, I'm sure I've seen this, but I've never really looked at it. It does remind me a bit of Cezanne.

  4. I love your comment, Brenda! It cracks me up! Your colors and textures ARE still gorgeous! 51 years isn't old!!! (Neither is 52!)

  5. I kind of want to steal it. Is stealing from a philosophy corner wrong? Guess we'll never know....
