Art Institute's Gloria Groom: "New Light on Some Old (and New) Favorites"

Just when you think you’ve seen and read everything there is to know about Impressionism and Post-Impressionism at the Art Institute of Chicago, there’s something around a corner that stops you in your tracks. Whether it’s a tambourine where a painting should be, a transformed surface of a recently cleaned canvas, or a pentimenti that suggests a painting beneath a painting, art at the museum is never static: it moves, expands, and takes on new meanings with each rotation, with each new interaction.
