Another Blockbuster Exhibition in San Francisco: Women Impressionists at the Legion of Honor

Friday, June 20th, 2008

Brace yourself for the latest museum blockbuster in San Francisco: Women Impressionists: Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt, Eva Gonzalès, Marie Bracquemond over at the Legion of Honor Museum. It’s going to be huge.

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco helpfully note that although this foursome ”did not form a cohesive sisterhood” (ala Le Sexe Dans La Ville, 2008), at least they “associated with each other and shared a desire to be taken seriously in the male-dominated art world of late-ninteenth-century France.” Cliquez sur pour augmenter:

You’ll also need to brace yourself for the retort major patron Diane B. Wilsey had for those critiques d’art who feel there have been too many “costume shows“ around town over the past several years. Here’s what Dede had to say yesterday:

“Get over it!”

Well, O.K. then.

On a related note, can you guess what’s coming to town soon? YSL! Yes, we’ll be getting an exhibition featuring about 145 of Yves Saint Laurent’s best ensembles, in a collaboration with Fondation Pierre Berge Yves Saint Laurent in Paris and The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. It will look a little something like this when it gets here.

And speaking of upcoming events, the latest iteration of the Cinema Supper Club, From the Golden Gate to the Silver Screen, starts up next month.

But let’s leave that for the future. Women Impressionists starts June 21, 2008.

Get your tickets here, unless the whole affair is too bourgy for you (as it might be for Kenneth Baker, but it’s hard tell what he thinks).
