Viewers will leave with their own lists of artists who should have made the cut. (Bonnard is on mine, though his absence is excused by the Metropolitan Museum’s current show of his late still lifes.) Some will also balk at the inclusion of Francis Alÿs, whose homage to Cézanne takes the form of a bubble-wrapped still life by the master. Ostensibly a substitute for the shimmering diffusion of form in Cézanne’s paintings, the plastic covering will strike most people as a cop-out.
