Framing details at the Legion of Honor

Yesterday, we went to the Legion of Honor to see Pissarro's People. (Oct. 22, 2011 until Jan. 22, 2012)
Camille Pissarro was one of the most complex and captivating members of the Impressionist group—a man whose life was as revolutionary as his art.
The exhibition celebrates the painter’s unique and lifelong interest in the human figure with over 100 paintings and works on paper spanning the artist’s entire career.

After seeing the show, we walked through the other galleries viewing the Legion’s permanent collection. The following images are close-up snapshots of details from paintings and artworks at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco.
