PAL President’s Message
“If you can’t please everyone with your actions and your art, please only a few. It is bad to please many.” —Friedrich Schiller
If you have not seen the Klimt and Rodin Art Show at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco, you are in for a treat. See it soon.
These two artists both embraced the symbolism movement and explored similar genres like: portraiture and the female figure.
Both artists generated controversy among the conservative artists in Vienna in the early 1900’s. Through their art, Klimt and Rodin aspired to convey the experience of being human, but in doing so, they broke with the traditions of art.
Don’t miss the drawings of Klimt and Rodin, above all, the images of woman.
Klimt and Rodin: An Artistic Encounter, now through January 28, 2018 at the Legion of Honor, San Francisco.
