A visit to San Francisco’s Legion of Honor in Golden Gate Park will bring you back to the scene in 1900 at the World’s Fair in Paris. It was there, for the first and only time, artists Peter Carl Fabergé, Louis Comfort Tiffany and Rene Lalique exhibited their work in the same venue.
The Legion’s Artistic Luxury: Fabergé, Tiffany, Lalique exhibition explores the master techniques and artistry of the three designers and the rivalry between them. The exhibition brings together 250 objects from more than 40 international lenders including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, His Serene Highness Prince Albert of Monaco and San Francisco’s own Dede Wilsey. Now through May 31, 2009.
