Degas, Impressionism, and the Paris Millinery Trade
Members of the Harvard Club of San Francisco are invited to a Private Docent Tour at the Legion of Honor Museum.
Degas, Impressionism, and the Paris Millinery Trade features 60 Impressionist paintings and pastels, including key works by Degas—many never before exhibited in the United States—as well as those by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Édouard Manet, Mary Cassatt, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and 40 exquisite examples of period hats. The exhibition will be the first to examine the height of the millinery trade in Paris, from around 1875 to 1914, as reflected in the work of the Impressionists. At this time there were around 1,000 milliners working in what was then considered the fashion capital of the world.
Following the tour, you are invited to join the group for coffee/lunch at the museum cafe. Coffee and lunch will begin at approximately 11:00am. Afterwards, you may re-visit the exhibits on your own.
This event is a joint event of the Harvard and Radcliffe Clubs of SF. It is open to members of the clubs and their guests.
