Book Overview
The catalogue of the sold-out exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago, a rich and unprecedented exploration of Chicago's embrace of Claude Monet's modernism Monet and Chicago is a stunner.-- The Chicago Tribune (exhibition review) In 1903, the Art Institute of Chicago became the first American museum to buy a painting by Claude Monet (1840-1926), beginning a tradition of collecting that has inextricably connected this midwestern city to the French Impressionist master. Tracing Chicago's unique relationship with the artist, this generously illustrated volume not only features well-known works in the Art Institute's holdings, such as the six Stacks of Wheat paintings and four Water Lilies , but also includes works on paper and rarely seen still lifes, landscapes, and photographic material from private Chicago collections. Stunning reproductions of details at actual size, a delightful essay by Adam Gopnik, and a richly illustrated chronology combine to reveal the depth of the city's continuing devotion to an adopted artistic hero.
