Well, I was afraid someone was going to ask for the details on these paintings and sculptures from the Legion of Honor and DeYoung Museum -- and Sean did ask -- so I've filled in a few details for the artworks that I have information on...   (I decided to shoot the nameplates when I was about half-way into the project)
Anyway, I don't have any information on the top painting,
but this is the nameplate info on the lower painting:

Baron Francois-Pascal-Simon Gerard
French, 1770-1837
La Comtesse de Morel-Vinde and Her Daughter, 1799
Oil on canvas
Museum Purchase, Mildred Anna Williams Collection
and William H. Noble Bequest Fund,
the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco
1979.8

Thanks Evlahos...

You probably noticed that I've added some nameplate information to some of the photos -- but I did a very incomplete job, as my visit to the museum was on the spur of the moment...   I need to go back -- preferably when there isn't too many people in the museum...

Thanks for the info.

Great job of capturing the paintings. I can almost feel the textures of them.
