John Singer Sargent At The Art Institute Of Chicago

File:John Singer Sargent 1903.jpg

John Singer Sargent has always been one of our most favorite artists, both for the sheer artistic beauty of his portraits and, naturally, for the clothes. 🙂 Up until now, we haven’t had the opportunity to actually see any of his works in person (but we do have an extensive collection of coffee table books devoted to Sargent). However, I happened on a an advertisement for an exhibition of his work at the Art Institute of Chicago that will be running through September 30. So, after checking our frequent flyer miles, it looks like we’ll be taking a quick weekend turnaround trip to Chicago in September. 🙂

Here’s just a small sample of what’s on display:

Maybe we’ll see this again when we go to Paris next February…. 🙂
