|photographer unknown, Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), The Thinker, Golden Gate Park, ca 1917|
The Thinker in Golden Gate Park?! Ciwt was shocked at the California Pioneers Museum to see an early 1900's photograph of Auguste Rodin's monumental statue pondering (or brooding) in front of Golden Gate Park's Conservatory of Flowers.
The entire time she's lived in San Francisco The Thinker has occupied its famously prominent place in the courtyard of the Legion of Honor. So Ciwt had forgotten to remember that there was a time lag between his arrival in San Francisco and the opening of the Museum (Big) Alma Spreckels built, filled with Rodins and other significant art works and donated to the City of San Francisco.
