Quiet Afternoons in Museums
There is nothing more beautiful than combining two of your favorite things. This weekend, I had the opportunity to share my love of Impressionism with one of my dearest friends.
Naturally, we took the scenic route that allowed us to wind along the grey sea on our way to The Legion of Honor's newest exhibition, "Impressionists on the Water."
In celebration of The America's Cup 2013, the Legion showcased a charming collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works featuring waterscapes. From raging waves crashing against cliffs to calm and quiet canals, the Impressionists loved water and all things nautical.
It was a lovely afternoon of quiet discussion on brush strokes, illusion and the Impressionist's hypnotizing manipulation of color.
