rainy monday

Had today off–a rainy Monday–so plunked myself on a Blue Line train and exited at Adams and Wabash. The Art Institute (and specifically the Manet exhibit) was my destination. But the permanent collections are such gems.

The Chagall windows. Blue has never looked so pretty.

A 1912 painting by John Sloan–one of the founders of the Ashcan School of American art.

Or this 1905 beauty by William James Glackens–you could get lost admiring it.
