Incredible array of so many excellent works! I’m thoroughly impressed. I love Miró, Giacometti, Gris and Picasso. However, a lot of the other artists’ works are extremely eye–opening. I liked Duchamp’s Hat Rack a lot!
Outstanding art photography of a wonderful modern collection! The Art Institute is such a treasure!
