~ San Francisco - Legion of Honor ~

On our last day in San Francisco we decided to visit the Legion of Honor Museum before heading out to the airport. It was a bit trickier to get to but we managed. Afterwards we had a shuttle come pick us up from the Museum but we also saw some taxis that would stop, in case you needed one. 

When we were there the featuring exhibitions were Intimate Impressions and Matisse from the SFMOMA. We had approximately 2 hours to see everything. I had enough time to leisurely walk through the whole thing and we even had lunch at their cafe.


Strangely enough this painting really captivated my attention and I even bought a postcard version of it.





    
A series of painting for Madame Pompadour of children acting out painting, sculpting, music, and architecture.




From Salon Dore of the Hotel de la Tremoille - an example of French Neoclassical interior architecture.









There are also ancient artifacts and artwork on the lower floor of the Museum but I don't remember them as prominently as the upper floor works and there wasn't a lot featured. Overall the museum was lovely and if you have the time while in San Francisco I do recommend it. They also have a museum featuring modern art called de Young Museum. I wanted to go there too but we had run out of time and the museums while relatively close to each other, aren't exactly neighbors.
