I went to the Art Institute of Chicago and it was amazing...just being able to see these incredible works in person. It's like seeing a very famous celebrity (much admired, which doesn't usually come hand in hand)in real life. Check out these pictures I took with my oh so handy camera phone (legally).
|"Cow's Skull with Calico Roses" by Georgia O'keeffe, being recreated by an art student. Fascinating to watch.|
|"American Gothic" by Grant Wood|
|"Water Lillies" by Claude Monet|
"Ballet Dancers" Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec,
|"Bordigera", Claude Monet|
|"Poppy Field", Claude Monet|
|"The Bedroom", by Vincent van Gogh|
|Self Portrait, Self Portrait|
|"Madame Roulin Rocking the Cradle", by Van Gogh|
|"Two Sisters", by Renoir|
Now feeling much smarter and very cultured, I am off to explore this wonderful city. Headed to Oak Park to see Frank Lloyd Wright's first home and studio. Stay tuned...
Bye bye birdie...
