FRAME|WORK is a weekly blog series highlighting an artwork in the Museums’ permanent collection. This week, we feature an unusual treasure in the Legion of Honor—it is unusual because it’s not a painting or a sculpture, but rather an entire room. The Salon Doré, an 18th-century French period room, is currently on view.
Salon Doré from the Hôtel de la Trémoille. French, Paris, ca. 1781. Painted and gilded wood with mirror. Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Richard S. Rheem. 1959.123 (Photograph of the 1962 installation).
