San Francisco: Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, de Young Museum

update/p.23

The de Young Museum is currently exhibiting "J.M.W. Turner:  Painting Set Free." It is the first major show focusing on his late career.  I found it especially interesting to see after viewing the recently released movie about Turner, "Mr. Turner."  More . . . Show runs through September 20, 2015.
