Painted Lady home in S.F. holds benefit for injured illustrator Paul Madonna

George Horsfall has never met the artist Paul Madonna, and he doesn’t know if Madonna ever drew Horsfall’s house, which is 712 Steiner St., a light blue Queen Anne Victorian, in a row of much-watched houses known as the Painted Ladies. of Alamo Square.

But as soon as Horsfall learned that Madonna was in the intensive care unit at San Francisco General Hospital with internal injuries after a horrific car crash, he began organizing a charity tour of his Painted Lady to help pay for Madonna’s medical expenses. Without hesitation or encouragement, he did it on four days to show how much the singer means to those who appreciate the look of San Francisco, and the way Madonna takes it with simple beauty.

“Paul has the ability to draw something you’ve seen a million times and add something new you’ve never seen before,” said Horsfall, whose family in San Francisco dates back to the Gold Rush. “He can take something old and tired and make it his own. I see him as an asset to the city.

Horsfall’s house is also a treasure. Built in 1894, it is the strongest of the seven houses on the Painted Ladies line, and offers a tour at 4 pm every day to all who gather in front.
