The Brothers Le Nain: Painters of 17th-Century France
The Le Nain brothers -- Antoine, Louis, and Mathieu -- were celebrated painters in Paris in the early 17th century. Little is known about their lives except that they lived and worked together, producing some of the most arresting paintings of their time. Discover the mysterious Le Nain brothers with Alfred Escoffier, a docent from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
Frank Stella: A Retrospective
Frank Stella burst onto the art scene in 1959 at the age of 23, with his legendary series of black paintings. Over the years his abstract compositions have become increasingly complex and dynamic, moving out from the walls into the third dimension, expanding the very definition of painting. Don't miss this opportunity to delve into the work of one of the most important living American artists in this docent-led presentation from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
Read My Pins: The Madeleine Albright Collection
A special exhibition at the Legion of Honor, on view November 19, 2016-January 29, 2017, assembles a remarkable range of more than 200 pins and brooches from the personal collection of Madeline Alrbight. Docent Clara Morrissey will showcase this eclectic collection, which represents nearly a century of jewelry design. Yet the jewelry's true interest lies not in its materials or monetary value but in the roles it played during her political service: Albright used her pins as silent yet visually outspoken codes to foreign officials and the press.
