|Eleanor of Toledo, 2006 by Isabelle de Borchgrave|
I love the Legion of Honor. I’ve been going there for so long that many of the masterworks in their collection seem like old friends. The current special exhibition Pulp Fashion: The Art of Isabelle de Borchgrave (February 5, 2011 - June 12, 2011) was amazing. I was mesmerized by her highly detailed, life size costumes created out of paper. The high-light of it, for me at least, was a gallery featuring costumes based on fashions worn by the Medici family. It was as if all those endless slides I viewed in art history classes came to life. I highly recommend it.
