Welcome back to Kingsley and our first trip of the 2017-2018 season. At the Legion of Honor we’ll see “Degas, Impressionism, and the Paris Millinery Trade,” an exhibit of 40 Impressionist paintings, by Degas, Manet, Renoir, Cassatt and Toulouse-Lautrec, depicting the millinery industry in Paris. During the late 1800s propriety demanded wearing a hat when going out, and millinery became a large industry, employing many women who designed and made beautiful hats. Artists in Paris were fascinated by the high-fashion hats and the women who created them. This is a collection of their observations of the women in their shops plying their trade. Examples of the hats they made at that time are included in the exhibit. 

While studying viticulture at the University in Davis, Rene di Rosa became acquainted with many of the artists and musicians of the era there and in the Bay Area. He acquired a large art collection which is now part of the di Rosa Preserve, his home in Napa. “Based on a True Story: Highlights of the di Rosa Collection,” the exhibit in the Gatehouse Gallery, is a record of the key movements in Northern California art in the last 60 years. Represented in his collection are artists Roy De Forest, Robert Arneson, Joan Brown, Manuel Neri, William Wiley, and Peter Voulkas.
