13 hours 38 min ago The Art Institute of Chicago Happy birthday to William Adolphe Bouguereau.
Though largely forgotten today, Bouguereau was once one of the most popular painters in Europe. His realistic depictions of classical subjects made him a bastion of academic painting and also a central target of the young Impressionists who regarded his work as overly polished and conservative.
Since the rise of Modernism, Bouguereau's name has largely gone unmentioned in the canons of art history while the reputation of the Impressionists has grown immensely.
See The Bathers in Gallery 223.
19 hours 12 min ago The Art Institute of Chicago The holidays have officially arrived at the Art Institute!
Our lions are adorned with traditional evergreen wreaths. We’ve decked the tiny halls of the Holiday Thorne Rooms. And the Neapolitan crèche—our intricate 18th-century nativity scene—is back on view.
And with a holiday calendar brimming with events the whole family can enjoy, there’s a reason to visit every day this season.
