Absolutely spectacular! Intimate Impressionism at the Legion of Honor is a must see. What a collection. Additional paintings (Vuillard & van Gogh) from the museums permanent collection were also brought out of storage and featured in the regular Impressionist room upstairs. Posting a few combined highlights and also added individual close ups to my regular Pinterest Museums & Art board. It’s a beautiful spring afternoon in San Francisco.
