As part of an effort to shape the future of scholarly publishing, the Getty Foundation in 2009 invited the Art Institute of Chicago and eight other museums to participate in a venture called the Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative.
This project aims to create new platforms for digital publications that provide in-depth curatorial research and conservation science alongside richly illustrated content in a format that readers find engaging, manageable, and unobtrusive. The Art Institute is pleased to present a preview of its first two catalogues. Volumes devoted to other artists and periods of art will be added in the future.

1 day 11 hours ago The Art Institute of Chicago Clyfford Still emerged in the 1940s as one of the most radical of the American Abstract Expressionists. Like his peers Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman, Still's canvases presented a sheer wall of paint dominated by monumental expanses of intense color. He considered his grand abstractions to be expressions of his identity and records of his emotional life.
If Clyfford Still's Untitled, 1958 is one of your favorite American works of art, share it with the country by voting for it to be displayed on billboards nationwide. #ArtEverywhereUS
