We also saw the Pulp Fashion: The Art of Isabelle de Borchgrave. She paints and manipulates paper, she forms trompe l’oeil masterpieces of elaborate dresses inspired by rich depictions in early European painting or by iconic costumes in museum collections around the world. The dresses looked like real dresses. I don't know how she got the paper to look like real lace. It was amazing. A lot of work goes in to those dresses. She must spend hours painting the paper to get it to look like fabric then shaping it into dresses.
We had a nice lunch in the museums cafe. Hubby, the boy and I got a yummy pulled BBQ pork sandwich that came with vegetable chips which were really good. The Legion of Honor has nice views of the San Francisco skyline although today it was a little hazy. It also has a view of the Golden Gate Bridge through the trees.
