“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” Mark Twain

British Impressionism Paintings 17

“All the pathos and irony of leaving one’s youth behind is thus implicit in every joyous moment of travel: one knows that the first joy can never be recovered, and the wise traveler learns not to repeat successes but tries new places all the time.” Paul Fussell

**A question: Does anyone know who this painting is by?

  1. Don’t know the artist, but really like the picture. Agree with Mark Twain, but not sure I agree about revisiting places, or memories of youth, or truths…… have found new riches in old places, memories, and truths when revisited at new stages of life.
