6 hours 21 min ago The Art Institute of Chicago NOW ON VIEW—Commissioned for the 1945 Hollywood movie and based on Oscar Wilde's novel of the same name, Ivan Albright's grotesque painting captures the moral decay of the story's protagonist. The hedonistic Dorian Gray sells his soul in exchange for eternal youth. Ultimately, the corruption of his wicked life is revealed in the disfigurement of his likeness in the portrait.
