Georges Seurat

Another great find at the Legion of Honor was a painting of the Eiffel Tower in Paris by Georges Seurat. The detail of this painting is crazy. The color choices are beautiful. My sister was reading the info about the painting, and it said that the painting isn't really finished because at the time he painted this the Eiffel Tower wasn't done... so he kind of just made it up. What a great artistic piece as well as a great little bit of history!

I love museums, and luckily two things happened. I have a sister-in-law who enjoys museums as well and Annie Leibovitz had a show there! Hurray. The exhibit was amazing. I loved it. She's truly talented. Of course I wanted some prints of my own but could not afford them. So,.... the great sister that she is.. she bought me three postcards of the prints. Three prints that I really loved were, luckily, in the postcard collection. Here are some great photos of my trip to the Legion of Honor in San Francisco

Parking was scarce... so we parked on the grass behind the museum.

my sister...

I must say that is sculpture is just absolutely amazing.

all in all.. it was great, eventful day. I have more on this topic to come!
