The Palace Legion of Honor is my favorite museum in San Francisco (& it’s up there on my list of favorite museums generally). Its architecture is stunning, and you can feel like you escaped to Europe for the afternoon there. There’s also a little bit of a spooky vibe, probably because I associate the place with Hitchcock’s classic Vertigo. Right now, they are having a marvelous impressionism exhibit with tons of beautiful paintings. I’ve said it before, but I really think modern fine art photography is heavily influenced by the impressionists, and this exhibit confirms my thinking. If you’re around SF, I recommend making an effort to get there. The exhibit closes August 3rd, so you still have a couple of weekends to make it happen.
