San Francisco: Impressionist Paris

San Francisco: Impressionist Paris

Concurrent with the Musée d’Orsay masterpiece exhibition at San Francisco’s de Young Museum is Impressionist Paris: City of Light at the Legion of Honor, with more than 180 prints, drawings, photographs, paintings, and illustrated books dating from 1850 to the early 1900s. Drawn from the permanent collection of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and several distinguished private collections, the exhibition includes works by Degas, Bonnard, Vuillard, Seurat, Monet, Pissarro, Gaugin and Cassatt, as well as posters by Toulouse-Lautrec, Chéret, Steinlen and Mucha. Curator James A. Ganz says the exhibition “is conceived as a journey from the dark alleys of ‘Old Paris,’ at the dawn of the Impressionist era, to a world of color and light, culminating in a gallery of vibrant French posters from the turn of the 20th century.”
