"Even great artists have down times, and not everything in the show measures up to great works that also include an introspective self-portrait owned by the Kimbell, a Breton landscape that hints at the flat perspective of the Tahitian paintings and Interior, Rue Carcel, a moody painting of the artist's apartment following the breakup of his marriage, with an empty chair at the table and figures of father and son couched in shadows."
