From Masters to Modernism

Overview

Enjoy a day of contrasting artists and artistry with exhibits at both the Legion of Honor and de Young Museums in San Francisco.

Details

Begin the morning at the Legion of Honor for a major exhibition of works by an association of young 19th century English artists who chose to rebel and innovate against Victorian art and the idealized works of the time. Fascinated by old masters such as Fra Angelico, Pietro Perugoin, and Jan Van Eyck, Truth and Beauty: The Pre-Raphaelites and the Old Masters is an eclectic collection of paintings, stained glass, furniture, textiles, and tapestries. Audio-guide is included for this exhibit.

In the afternoon, a docent-guided tour for Cult of the Machine: Precisionism and American Art at the de Young Museum. Works by American modernists include Georgia O'Keefe, Charles Sheeler, Charles Demuth, clips of films sch as Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times, and decorative arts and objects including a Phaeton automobile illustrate and highlight this industrial and transformative period of our early 20th Century history. Lunch on your own at either museum.

We do not share specific pickup information on our website, as we have found over the years that other travel groups tend to use our pickup points without ours or the property owner's permission, which reflects poorly on our company and hurts our ability to offer convenient pickup points to our clients. Accordingly, we ask that you not suggest our pickup points to other groups you travel with, as "the more the merrier" does not often apply to parking lots. Your understanding is appreciated.
