May 2020 Newsletter

Palms and Art

Regretfully, this was the month we were to convene on Réunion Island for an undoubtedly memorable biennial experience. Obviously, this was not possible. Instead, we shall indulge in armchair travel through the eyes of great artists. Given that Réunion is an overseas department of France, I will dedi-cate this newsletter to French artists and their depictions of palms.


Algiers, The Garden of Essai (1881) By Pierre-Auguste Renoir

In next month’s newsletter we will be hiking the forests of Réunion, virtually of course.
