De Young Museum

Yesterday I met my Color Theory Class at the De Young Museum to see the Impressionist exhibit. We weren’t allowed to take any photos of the paintings but the exhibit is well worth seeing =) There were paintings from Van Gogh, Emile Bernard, Sargent, Cezanne, Gaugin, and many others.

 Golden Gate Park.

Émile BERNARD Symbolist self-portrait
I also saw this painting there at the exhibit and my friends from class and I
overheard some other people talking about how this piece was made because 
Emile and Gaugin became friends and that he was unhappy that Gaugin was taking 
interest in his sister because Gauguin was known to be the biggest player. lol. 

Outside of the De Young Museum

 The title of this painting is “Orpheus” this is also hanging in the exhibit and is completely massive! It’s a sight to see! I did a quick search online to see if I could find the bigger than life size Sargent painting I saw inside the exhibit but I guess there are no photos of it anywhere. It must have been about 4.5 feet by 14 at least, it was a life size portrait of a Spanish singer with a golden-yellow dress. Oh well, I guess you’ll just have to go to the exhibit and see it for yourself. 😉
