I went to this exhibition today with my brother who is visiting the Bay Area from Australia. As he is a fan of Impressionism, of course we cannot miss this exhibition. On this post, I am quoting the introduction about this exhibition from the site of de Young Museum, and also two reviews from SF Chronicle.
