This fantastic oil painting depicts the classical facade of the Art Institute of Chicago in the bright afternoon light. On the right hand side of the painting, one of the Institute’s iconic lion statues looks out at the viewer. The architecture of the building is both majestic and sweeping, covering the majority of the image. The colors used are primarily shades of gray and blue. In the distance the viewer can see the skyline of downtown Chicago. The painting comes with an elegantly designed, wooden frame with a golden finish.
