At the Art Institute

Visiting the Art Institute of Chicago last month was wonderful. What a treat to be able to catch a major exhibition of photographs by Henri Cartier-Bresson! (But no photographing the photographs allowed.) And then to stroll through dozens of other galleries filled with familiar and unfamiliar art. I do think I should like to decorate my own home this way …


… with a massive O’Keefe above the stairs (Sky Above Clouds IV, 1965) …

.


… Caillebotte in the front hall (Paris Street, Rainy Day, 1877) …

.


… a late 17th century American kast (a large chest with double doors) in the bedroom …

.


… some bodhisattvas in the library …

.


… an Ellsworth Kelly on the upstairs landing (The Chicago Panels, 1989-99) …

.


… and, oh, what the heck, another Kelly in the garden (White Curve, 2009).
