Impressed by Impressionism

The Yellow Curtain | Edouard Vuillard | 1893
Currently the Legion of Honor in San Francisco is presenting impressionism and post-impressionism work by some of the masters within those realms of painting. The exhibit is titled, Intimate Impressionism, and is on loan from the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. There are 70 pieces, considered to be small artworks, think of them as adorning the walls of private homes. The genius of Manet, Monet, Van Gogh, C├ęzanne, and Renoir are housed in the first wondrous gallery. In the second you will find the works of Vuillard and Bonnard, two incredibly gifted painters who skillfully juxtaposed flat yet colorful creations, thus establishing their own artistic dialogue (Nabis). This outstanding exhibit runs through August 3rd.
