Arty Tuesday: AIC – Bordighera by Monet

October is going to feature items from the Art Institute of Chicago since I was visiting there last month. I had to stop and admire this painting when I saw it on the wall. I saw it (or a very similar one) at a museum in Dallas years ago during  traveling exhibition. I admired the piece so much that I bought the poster for the exhibition, Monet on the Mediterranean. And, of course, that poster is one of the items I lost in Katrina. It was on the wall next to my bed, underneath where I lost a chunk of roof. And since the frame was cheap with just a cardboard backing…no more poster for me.
