Day 42: The Birth of Impressionism
De Young Museum the Birth of Impressionism This once in a lifetime show opens to the public on Saturday. Today, Friday, May 21, 2010 we have tickets to see this celebrated exhibition. The Impressionists in Paris lit a lamp in the art world that shines still today. San Francisco is the only city honored to show this rare collection which is permanently housed in the Museed'Orsay in Paris. Major works by Manet, Monet, Renoir and Sisley will be shown. I'm borrowing these online images from the Impressionist collection.
