The letters of our thoughts are the ideas present in our mind before they come to realization . . . Thoughts that are, yet not felt . . . The words of the subconscious . . . of the soul . . .

These are the LETTERS OF MY THOUGHTS.

The Art Institute of Chicago - A Photo Essay



As I've done in the past - enjoy the photos!

Click on the link to see them all!

I was actually surprised how many famous works the Art Institute had . . . their collection of French Impressionists was amazing . . .






I love Renoir






One of my favorites


Another great - love the guy in the red shirt and kasket smoking his pipe! Seurat's pointillism always fascinated me as a child.







Not my favorite - but a famous one.




Brilliant!






Monet tops them all off as my favorite - the fact that he pained series of paintings makes it all the more enjoyable!
























Some of my own art



American artists:










Love Nighthawks





Did you ever notice that the folds of his overalls and shirt look like the pitchfork?










Other Museums I've photographed:
MoMA, Hermitage
Technorati Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

I am of course, obscenely jealous. Most of these I've only seen in textbooks or prints.

Have they reopened the modern art wing yet? I was so bummed to not find the full Joseph Cornell collection the past few times I've been. When I lived in Chicago I went so many times. Degas is one of my favorites :)

Nice, did you check out the miniature houses on the lower level? That part I liked a lot dude. We went there during sheva brochos.
