Back to Mr. Hitchcock. In his movie Vertigo, there is a scene happening precisely in this museum, The Legion of Honor. Madeleine (Kim Novak) sit in one of the galleries in front of a portrait. Well, here, America has changed, it definitely is less glamourous, but the woman is contemplating a painting the same way Madeleine did. There is a bleak harmony of colors in the brown hue that suits the souvenir of the film, although - as long as I can remember - the sequence is not in these colors. I went to the Legion of Honor specifically because of Vertigo. It is kind of a dream of a place, on the edge of a hill, with a spectacular view. But although I shot many pictures outdoors, and I was lucky enough with the light, it was shrouded with a thick layer of fog and the mood was amazing, I prefer this memory of the place, almost symmetrical and boring. I definitely have the images of the Hitchcok film engraved int my brain.
