Artful Animals
UNITED STATES
SAN FRANCISCO  •  Legion of Honor  •  Ongoing
 
 

This exhibition draws from the vast resources of the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts to produce a compelling portrait of the animal world, represented in a wide array of cultures, artistic styles, and media, from about AD 1500 to the present. Some of the artists included in this exhibition have drawn their subjects from life, depicting the roles they play in our everyday experience, while others have used animals with symbolic intent or have anthropomorphized them to humorous, playful, or even unsettling ends.

This first part of a two-part exhibition focuses on creatures both domesticólike dogs, horses, and rabbits and exotic (elephants, monkeys, and camels). Part two examines fish, fowl, insects, cats, and rodents.
