Bookworks: 10 Years of Acquisitions
Beginning in the 1970s, Chicagoans Reva and David Logan assembled a remarkable collection of modern artist-illustrated books, which they gave to the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco in 1998. The collection resides in our home for works on paper, the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, forming the core of our extensive holding of these hybrid works of art. This exhibition, together with the inaugural exhibition in the Legion of Honor’s new works on paper gallery, presents recent gifts from the Logan family and other generous donors, as well as recent museum purchases. Highlights include two books illustrated by Pablo Picasso and important contemporary works. These recent additions strengthen and extend our collection of this vibrant and engaging artform, the artist’s book.
