Private Tour of "The Mourners" with SF Curator, Dr. Lynn Orr
The 2011 winner of the Association of Art Museum Curators award for excellence in the category of outstanding small exhibitions, "The Mourners: Tomb Sculptures from the Court of Burgundy," is on view at the Legion of Honor. The exhibition features 37 exceptional devotional figures that recreate the mourners in a royal funeral procession. On loan from the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Dijon, these small marvels have never before been seen in their entirety outside of France prior to the current seven-city exhibition tour. Curator Dr. Lynn Federle Orr, who is responsible for the San Francisco presentation, will give our small group of Club members a private tour, when the museum is closed to the general public.
