Our de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park just kicked off its new show. It’s called Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne, and Beyond: Post-Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay and it runs from September 25th to January 11, 2011.
Here’s what the kick-off looked like.
John Buchanan, Director of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (FAMSF), says this is your “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” Listen to him talk all about the new show on KQED-FM’s Forum program – it’s on right now.
“Post-Impressionists From the Musee d’Orsay
We discuss the second of two exhibits hosted by San Francisco’s de Young Museum, featuring Impressionist masterpieces from the Musee d’Orsay in Paris. This exhibit highlights Post-Impressionist works from Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cezanne and beyond. We talk with the directors of both the Musee d’Orsay and the de Young Museum.
Host: Michael Krasny
- Guy Cogeval, president of the Musee d’Orsay in Paris
- John Buchanan, director of Fine Arts Museums San Francisco, including the de Young Museum”
But if you miss the radio show, they’ll post an mp3 soon enough.
It’s Didi! Diane B. Wilsey, Board President of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (FAMSF), reminded everybody about the goings on at the “little sister” Legion of Honor Museum just to the north of the de Young:
And here’s Romain Serman, our brand new French Consul General. He’s been on the job in San Francisco for seven weeks. He says that we’re “truly the sister of Paris.”
And here’s Guy Cogeval, President of the Musee D’Orsay. He says this exhibit is more beautiful than the first one he loaned us this year.
See you there!
