Paintings from the 19th Century to the Present
A world-class collection of paintings, in the palm of your hand.
The Art Institute of Chicago houses some of the most celebrated paintings from the nineteenth century to the present: Georges Seurat’s A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, Grant Wood’s American Gothic, Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks.
These and nearly three hundred other masterpieces, from Delacroix and Ingres to Takashi Murakami and Kerry James Marshall, are illustrated in a vibrant new edition of this best-selling Tiny Folio. It has been completely revised and updated to bring it up to the present day, and to reveal the full international scope of the Art Institute’s painting collection.
This charming little volume is at once the perfect memento of a visit to the Windy City, and a pocket-sized survey of the styles and subjects of the last two-plus centuries of painting, from Neoclassicism and Romanticism to the pluralistic practices of today’s global art world.
James Rondeau is President and Director of the Art Institute of Chicago.
