Inside the Legion

At the Legion of Honor photography was not permitted in the Women Impressionists galleries, which are badly-lighted, low-ceilinged, windowless and overcrowded anyway, so it's not as if good photographs would be likely to emerge from that space. But upstairs the lofty permanent galleries with diffused natural light were virtually empty. And the curators have painted the walls in splendidly conducive colors.
