This lavishly illustrated catalog edited by Douglas Druick, President and Director of the Art Institute of Chicago is scholarly and informative. Its goal is to illuminate the most recognizable and outstanding works in the museum’s paintings collection with a “balanced view” in mind. Its intelligent overview of 150 of the greatest paintings in the collection organized in terms of carefully analyzed representative artistic eras and highly individualized artists’ styles is the perfect tribute to the stunning collection of masterpiece paintings prized by the Art Institute of Chicago.
