Every day is fashion day at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, an institution celebrating its 75th anniversary with a special show from the permanent collection (with much homage paid to donors, as donors expect). This afternoon I saw several exciting things never displayed before, such as a tall, coffin-shaped, ochre-colored early Motherwell oil. Alas my camera is not subtle enough in its workings to capture anything useful about the Motherwell. This show is worth many repeat visits.
