J.M.W. Turner was renown for working on his paintings prior to exhibitions at the Royal Academy, London, right up to the last minute, during the so called "Varnishing Day". He would get onto a ladder or a bench and add the vital accent of color here or brush stroke there, working on his paintings, adding last minute touches, as they were displayed on the walls. His performances gained notoriety and in the end attracted quite a crowd!

This exhibition presents a survey of Worden’s photographs from the first two decades of the 20th century, including views of San Francisco’s coastline, Golden Gate Park, and Chinatown. A recurring subject for the photographer was the surviving entryway to a Nob Hill mansion destroyed in the earthquake of 1906 and relocated to Golden Gate Park in 1909. Called the Portals of the Past, the ruin served as both a monument to the city’s recent tragedy and a symbol of its perseverance.
