Outing to the Legion of Honor Museum for the Klimt/Rodin Exhibit

To start our New Year with creative inspiration, we visited the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco for our Wednesday outing. The exhibition was an innovative display of both Auguste Rodin’s sculptures and Gustav Klimt’s paintings, spread across four rooms, with examples of each of the artist’s work together in each space. The two artist’s were contemporaries of the late 19th century-early 20th century, with Rodin living and working in France and Klimt residing in Austria. Our residents really enjoyed viewing the intricate paintings of Klimt, alongside the sensuous and complex figure sculptures of Rodin. And for a visual bonus, the museum is perched high above the headwaters near the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco, a visual delight that is always breathtakingly beautiful.
