There is so much to see at the Chicago Art Museum. Here are the pieces that caught my interest…
Doris Lee (1905-1983) ~ Thanksgiving, c. 1935, Oil on canvas.
Randolph Rogers (1825-1892) Nydia the blind flower girl of Pompeii
Flower Girl in Holland, 1887. George Hitchcock
The Annunciation ~ George Hitchcock ~ Mary depicted as a Dutch peasant girl in a field of lilies.
The next several pieces are from the artist Monet…
There were many more pieces painted by Monet.
Pierre Auguste Renoir , Young Woman Sewing, 1879.
Gustave Caillebotte, Paris Street; Rainy Day, 1877.
“Marc Chagall’s America Windows is one of the most beloved treasures in Chicago’s Art Museum’s vast collection. First debuting at the Art Institute in 1977 and made forever famous less than ten years later by an appearance in the film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, the “Chagall Windows,” as they are more popularly known, hold a special place in the hearts of Chicagoans. Following an intensive period of conservation treatment and archival research, the windows returned in 2010 as the stunning centerpiece of a new presentation at the east end of the museum’s Arthur Rubloff building.”
If you are ever in Chicago you shouldn’t miss this great art museum. What I’ve shared is such a small representation of what the museum offers.
We are yearning for sunshine here in the Pacific Northwest. This weather just makes me want to curl up with a good book. I’m enjoying a new to me murder mystery series by Anne Perry. Today I’m looking forward to meeting up with the gals from my Bible Study Tuesday group for a casual lunch in Lake Forest Park. It will be nice to see them and do a little catch up.
