Chicago trip : Part Three~ Art Institute of Chicago
On our last day in Chicago, we visited the world renowned Art Institute. I love Impressionist art, and the collection there is fabulous! There was an exhibit going on featuring the collection amassed by Vollard, an art dealer in Paris. We weren't allowed to take pictures of those paintings, but the collection brought back together from all over the world, was stunning. There were also beautiful collections of decorative art, and Asian artifacts.
Here's some photos from the things that caught my eye, including my favorite Renoir painting the Two Sisters. Some of these views are details of the art.
Hope you enjoy this little view into the Institute
