In celebrating the centenary of French sculptor Auguste Rodin, (1840-1917), this tour will look at his works in the Legion of Honor as juxtaposed with sculptures created by two 21st century artists, Urs Fischer (b. 1973) and Sarah Lucas (b. 1962). The works will be placed in such proximity as to encourage comparisons and observations of differences and similarities in subjects, materials, and styles. Such observations will enhance familiarity with contemporary sculptures and discussions of each artist's respective modernity in response to their time.

Monet: The Early Years is the first major US exhibition devoted to the initial phase of Claude Monet’s (French, 1840–1926) career. Through approximately sixty paintings, the exhibition demonstrates the radical invention that marked the artist’s development during his formative years of 1858 to 1872. In this period, the young painter developed his unique visual language and technique, creating striking works that manifested his interest in painting textures and the interplay of light upon surfaces.

Sculptor Seraphin Soudbinine (1867-1944) won his fame with his statuettes of participants of “S. Diaghilev Ballet Seasons” which vividly portrayed all the resplendence and originality of the Russian culture. Soudbinine worked  for the Imperial porcelain factory in St. Petersburg and created unique portraits of Anna Pavlova, Tamara Karsavina and others. These works Soudbinine also made  in gold, silver and bronze. Some of them are in the collection of Fine Arts Museums of San Fransisco. Soudbinine moved to Paris in 1910 s and became a student of O. Rodin.
