Sat., 2/1/14: Anders Zorn @ the Legion of Honor

Anders Zorn, Sweden's Master Painter:  One of the most famous living artists at the turn of the 20th century, Anders Zorn (1860–1920) dazzled the art world with his bravura paintings, watercolors, and etchings. His early travels took him to Spain and Algeria where the intense color and light inspired the virtuoso watercolorist to perfect his craft. In Paris he emulated the Impressionists as a chronicler of modern life, while in America he rivaled John Singer Sargent as the most sought-after portraitist of glittering high society. Back at home Zorn captured his native folk culture and the serenity of the Nordic landscape.

Featuring 100 rarely seen works drawn from public and private collections throughout Europe and the United States, this major retrospective promises to be a revelation for those yet to discover the vibrant artistic personality of Sweden’s master painter.

TICKETS:  $15.  Save $1 with advance online purchase:

Let's meet by the info desk at 12:00 p.m. Please try to be on time, thanks.

Tentative plan; we'll confirm when we meet: At 1:30 p.m., we could take a break and grab some coffee in the cafeteria and compare notes about the exhibit.  We could then go back to the exhibit or check out the Legion's permanent collection, and reconvene in the lobby at 3:00 p.m. to finish our discussion and to see if anyone's interested in an early dinner.  Mandalay Burmese Restaurant on California Street (between 5th & 6th Streets) is my recommendation for dinner.

Closer to the date of this meetup, I'll email the attendees my phone # and info about what I'll be wearing so that everyone can easily recognize me.

    What Zorn did with watercolors is amazing. I loved all the pieces in the exhibit. After our nice lunch together, I went back to the Zorn area and spent most of my time there and was kicked out of the Legion at 5:15 p.m.

    What a really terrific day! Thank you, everyone, for joining me. I hope to see you again real soon.

    I would just buy one on line. You get into the exhibit by buying a general admission ticket.

      Thanks, Cheryl. Yes, the safest thing to do is to purchase your ticket online.

    I just called The Legion to confirm ticketing:

    - It's $16 for the general admission and the exhibit.

    - If you are a BofA customer and you show your debit/ATM card, they'll waive your general admission, so you only have to pay $6 for the exhibit.

    Caution: Because there are only a couple more days of the exhibit left, it'll be extremely busy tomorrow.

    I'm a BofA customer, so I'm going to chance it and try to get my ticket in person.

    Thursday night, I'll email you guys my phone # and info about what I'll be wearing so that you can easily spot me in the lobby.

    Is anyone planning on leaving from the East Bay or, better yet, Berkeley? I need a ride & could meet you at a BART station. Thanks!

      Hey, Julie. If nobody is able to give you a ride, I could pick you up at Embarcadero.
