Join a tour of American Beauty: The Osher Collection of American Art led by a museum docent.

This exhibition celebrates one of the most transformative gifts of art in the history of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Anchored by the works of Impressionist and Realist masters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the collection describes the dynamic and complicated ways in which American art was shaped both by its international influences and by its regional character.
