Legacy Society members plus special guests are invited to the annual Legacy Society Lecture and Tea on Monday, December 4, 2023. Welcome remarks will be given by Thomas P. Campbell, director and CEO, and Furio Rinaldi, curator of the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts.
About the exhibition
Presented exclusively at the Legion of Honor, Botticelli Drawings is a landmark exhibition and the first one ever dedicated to the drawings of Renaissance artist Sandro Botticelli (ca. 1445–1510). Exploring the foundational role drawing played in Botticelli’s work, the exhibition traces his artistic journey, from studying under maestro Fra Filippo Lippi (ca. 1406–1469) to leading his own workshop in Florence. Featuring rarely seen and newly attributed works from 42 lenders, the exhibition provides unprecedented insight into the design practice of an artist whose name is synonymous with the Italian Renaissance.
This event is open to Legacy Society members plus special guests. Advance reservations are required and will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis. Legacy Society members plus special guests can RSVP by Thursday, November 30 at email@example.com or 415.750.7648.
