Art Institute of Chicago
The Art Institute of Chicago is a museum and art school located on Michigan Avenue next to Grant Park, across from Lake Michigan in Chicago. It is one of the most important art museums in the world and is surely among the top three in the United States, along with the Metropolitan Museum of New York and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and has one of the most important permanent collections of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism paintings of the world.
It was founded in 1879 and George Armor was its first president. In 1893 the museum was moved to a Renaissance-style building designed by the architecture studio of Shepley, Rutan and Coolidge, in Boston. The building had been built for the World Columbian Exposition, held that same year. The museum's collection is due in part to donations made by wealthy people as a gift to the city of Chicago.
The most significant collections are those of Italian, Flemish, Dutch and Spanish painting. Some famous painters represented are El Greco, José de Ribera, Rembrandt and Frans Hals.
