I decided to take advantage of free museum admission day which is every first Tuesday of the month in the city. I went to the Legion Of Honor since I have always skipped it for the De Young for the past couple of years. Luckily, I found out they had a traveling impressionism exhibit from, the one and only, National Gallery of Art in DC. I lived in Northern Virginia for a portion of my life and frequented DC solely for that museum because it is honestly the best in the world. I have been to the Louvre and the D'Orsay in Paris and the National Gallery of Art outshines them all in terms of impressionism.
I want to sum up why I have forever been drawn towards impressionism. There is something about it being imperfect with strokes of sheer emotion that has continually identified with me. Up close, the flaws are apparent; while from afar, it looks like a masterpiece. Its the most real form of art, in my opinion.
Altogether, it was good, but not worth an admission fee. I strongly feel all museums in San Francisco aren't worth the buck, especially if you have been to ones in other states or overseas. So if you are planning a visit to any of them be sure to go on the first Tuesday of the month.
