Some of our favorite Past Exhibits have included:

Post Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musée d'Orsay
Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne and Beyond: Post Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musée d'Orsay, the second of two prized collections from the Musée d’Orsay’s permanent collection of Post-Impressionist works, highlighted the work of preeminent artists including Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin,Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Vincent van Gogh, and more!

Birth of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d'Orsay
The de Young is the only museum in the world to host both of the Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay exhibitions, and this particular combination of paintings will never travel again. Birth of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d'Orsay ran from May 22-Sept. 6, 2010.


"Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs"
The treasures of Tutankhamun returned to San Francisco for the first time in 30 years. The special exhibit "Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs ran from June 27, 2009-March 28, 2010.

"Warhol Live"
"Warhol Live" was fantastic — one of our favorite all-time exhibits! We've seen several Warhol exhibits over the years, but this was by far the most extensive — and the best yet. The exhibit explored, for the first time, the role of music in the work and life of Andy Warhol. Many of Warhol's famous works of art were displayed — Elvis, Mick Jagger, Liza Minnelli, Michael Jackson, Grace Jones... the Campbell's Soup Can and Brillo Boxes — in addition to his album covers (including the infamous "Sticky Fingers" Rolling Stones album), illustrations, photographs, Polaroids... and more!
