Legion of Honor

Located in Lincoln Park overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Golden Gate Bridge, and all San Francisco, the Legion of Honor building itself is a three-quarter scale adaptation of the 18th-century Palais de la Legion d'Honneur in Paris and one of San Francisco's most beautiful museums.

The museum displays a collection of over 4,000 years of ancient and European art and houses the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts. Highlights include works by El Greco, Peter Paul Rubens, Auguste Rodin, Rembrandt van Rijn, Claude Monet and Fra Angelico. Perhaps Rodin's best-known monumental work, the Thinker, dominates the Legion's outdoor Court of Honor.

Museum highlights:

  • European Paintings: El Greco, Saint John the Baptist, ca. 1600; Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, The Empire of Flora, ca. 1743; Rembrandt van Rijn, Joris de Caulerij, 1632; Claude Monet, Water Lilies, ca. 1914–1917; Georges de La Tour, Old Woman and Old Man, ca. 1618–1619.
  • Ancient Art: Seneb, the royal scribe, ca. 1938-1850 BC, Egypt. Painted wood (probably sycamore)
  • Period Room: Salon Doré from the Hôtel de la Trémoille, Paris, ca. 1781, France. Gilt and painted wood, plaster, stone, mercury gilded glass.
