Legion of Honor

Here are a few more things that Mabel and I saw at the Legion of Honor the other day. The first half of these photos are some of her favorite sculptures, and the second half are some of my favorite portraits. I've been looking at these painted faces since I was round about Mabel's age, and they feel to me exactly like people I know; old friends I haven't seen in some time, but whose company I recall with pleasure. I wonder if she will feel the same way about the bronzes and marbles when she is an old lady. I hope so.
