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 8 hours ago The Art Institute of Chicago After establishing himself in the 1950s as an Abstract Expressionist painter, Philip Guston baffled critics with a move toward simpler, cartoonish images, as seen in this piece, Couple in Bed. Here the artist can be seen holding his paintbrushes as tightly as he does his wife, Musa, who in May of 1977 suffered a series of debilitating strokes.
If Couple in Bed 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
