Back in the pre-pandemic days when we took students on fields trips, I went with the French classes to San Francisco’s Legion of Honor Museum. What a treat of a day! We just wandered through the museum, which has an excellent permanent collection of Rodin and Monet and many other great things.
Previously I’ve posted photos of Venetian cassoni, the chests that usually held a trousseau or a woman’s linens or clothing that she took with her to her new husband’s home. The museum had an excellent specimen, so I’m sharing it with you here.
