I didn’t spend very long in Chicago. On Thursday afternoon I was sleep-deprived and it was drizzly.
On Saturday afternoon I spent a few hours in the Art Institute of Chicago, where I took dozens of photos, but I’ll only share one painting photo. Everywhere I turned I saw a slide from one of my art history classes! It was quite impressive and very overwhelming. I couldn’t begin to see it all, so I concentrated on early 20th century paintings, my favorite period.
I was so pleased to see this Franz Marc painting. He is one of my very favorite artists and he died young in WWI so not only was his time cut short on this earth, not much of his art survived the Nazis.
I had never been to Chicago, and I didn’t have much time, but now I will have a better idea of what to do next time I’m there.
