The Art Institute of Chicago

Our first full day in Chicago started with a visit to the Art Institute. Fabulous art gallery and currently featuring the exhibit............

The Art of Victorian Photocollage"

which will appear at the AGO June - September 2010

This is really a splendid Art Gallery with an amazing collection.

I purchased this book as it is the perfect illustration of the Victorian scrapbooking technique. It is a fascinating blend of watercolours done to support the photography.

This is the book which fully covers the art. Much more expensive and really heavy. We're off to the architectural river cruise.
