Despite an odd employee chastizing me for leaning to close to the art at the Art Institute last night – are there really adults walking around today who think it’s okay to touch the art in museums? – I managed to have a fabulous time. I looked at everything from 1930’s chrome cocktailware to sculptures by Rodin, but here are two of my favorite paintings.
This is The Room by Eldzier Cortor
This is The Captive Slave by John Phillip Simpson
