I had a GREAT day at the Art Institute of Chicago yesterday with my daughter's class. If you ever get an opportunity to visit the Art Institute of Chicago, I highly recommend it! I'm sad to say, but it's been quite a few years since I've been there, but we'll be returning soon. We have to go back, because there was SO much to see, but too little time! I didn't even get a chance to stop in the gift shop! Here's my absolute favorite of the day:
This is "A Sunday on La Grande Jatte" by Georges Seurat. This painting is tiny dots of color. It's absolutely amazing to stand in front of it! It was featured in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off". Love Ferris!
My daughter really loved this painting:
This is "Paris Street; Rainy Day" by Gustave Caillebotte. Absolutely gorgeous! The detail is amazing!
I love these two Monet paintings. Breathtaking!
This is "Sandvika, Norway". Beautiful!
This is "Arrival of the Normandy Train, Gare Saint-Lazare". Amazing!
We had to walk past this (because we had a docent giving us a tour at the beginning of our visit), and we didn't have time to go back to it. Next time! My daughter was so bummed we didn't get a chance to go back to it, because she didn't notice that we walked past it! This is "American Gothic" by Grant Wood.
We really need to go back soon! Just amazing seeing all of these gorgeous works of art!
Thanks for stopping by!
