Da Vinci Drawings at the Legion of Honor

On Wednesday, Dyan, Nora, and I went to the Legion of Honor to see the exhibit of Leonardo Da Vinci's drawings. Leonardo is definitely been the main focus of several exhibits in the past two years. It was a fairly small exhibit, but what they had was amazingly preserved. His sketches are incredibly detailed, showing major muscular definition and movements. He also did a great job at exhibiting facial expressions. We also went and viewed the collection from the State Museum of Berlin that was also on display. I was amazed at how many artifacts they had from ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Far East, and even a Renoir. Little Nora was great- she loved to say "Ut Oh" when she dropped something, to delight to some of the other patrons. We also saw them setting up for a big party in the courtyard, with gold decorations and lights. It would be so fun to be able to attend a big soire there.
