In front of it a circular pond with fountain and flower beds, including a flower which always says San Fran to me - the agapanthus.
You enter through this archway.
The exhibition rooms are spacious and well set out, and you have plenty of time to wander and absorb, and wander back again. We spent two or three hours there - including a somewhat overpriced veggie-burger for lunch - I guess this made up for the entrance price of a mere $5 each.
The paintings cover European Art. Highlights for me (among many):
|The Merry Company by Gaspare Traversi|
|The Fortune Teller by Jacques-Louis David|
|A portrait by Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun|
|Sarah Bernhardt - Jules Bastien-Lepage|
|Snow Effect, Damvillers - Jules Bastien-Lepage|
|Mother and child - Pierre-Auguste Renoir|
Many of the paintings etc from the museum are online here .
Outside again we noticed this plaque - reminder to self, look her up!
Finally a view of the famous bridge as we walked down the Camino del Mar.
