We recommend visiting the Legion of Honor on your trip to San Francisco for the Cancer Metastasis Symposium. On view Feb. 25 to May 29, 2017 at the Legion of Honor, Monet: The Early Years is the first major U.S. exhibition devoted to the initial phase of Claude Monet’s career. Through approximately 60 paintings, this exhibition demonstrates the radical invention that marked Monet’s development during his formative years when he developed his unique visual language and technique, creating striking works that manifest his interest in painting textures and the interplay of light. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience Monet’s mastery before Impressionism, and witness paintings that are profoundly daring and surprising.
A limited number of special exhibition timed-entry tickets are available for Monet: The Early Years. Advanced reservations are strongly recommended.
