Impressionists on the Water

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco recently hosted an evening reception to celebrate the opening of "Impressionists on the Water," an exhibition deeply tied to the physical and cultural landscape of the Bay Area. Impressionists on the Water has been organized in conjunction with America's Cup and offers a unique complement to this summer's races on the Bay. Impressionists on the Water features approximately 85 works by Pre ­Impressionists, Impressionists, and Post ­ Impressionists, including Charles ­ François Daubigny, Claude Monet, Pierre ­ Auguste Renoir, Gustave Caillebotte, Camille Pissarro, Alfred Sisley, Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, Theophile van Rysselberghe, Pierre Bonnard, and others. The exhibition also includes two boats and six boat models that further demonstrate the important role sailing, rowing, and yachting played in the social and artistic contexts of 19th ­century France. Tickets can be purchased on site and on the museums' respective websites: http://www.legionofhonor.org / legionofhonor.org and http://www.deyoungmuseum.org / deyoungmuseum.org
