Impressionist and Post-Impressionist Collection at the Art Institute of Chicago

Category: ARTS & CULTURE

In the new installation, visitors are once again greeted at the top of the Grand Staircase by Gustave Caillebotte’s Paris Street, Rainy Day, and other iconic paintings from the height of the Impressionist period in the 1870s. However, works that once were located in galleries south of this central space now stretch east though upper Gunsaulus Hall, completing the Allerton Building’s chronological circuit of European painting from the 15th through the 19th century. Two additional galleries and nearly 5,000 square feet of extra space house not only the paintings and sculpture that had been on loan but also works from the collection of European decorative arts and recently acquired objects that have never before been displayed.
