Le déjeuner sur l'herbe

Anyone who's painted or drawn in our workshops over the past 15 years will recognize the nude model in this tableaux vivants on the Grand Staircase at the Art Institute of Chicago.

She was part of a gala celebration for the opening of "Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity" at the museum last weekend, as documented by Crain's Chicago Business

A Collection of Walter Parke

Libby Pattishall, a former student of Walter Parke, 
has just sent us photos of her collection of his work.


I hadn't expected such variety in his work

This one belongs to the early 19th C.

Whenever art returns
to being about something
more important
than itself,
Walter Parke will be much better known
than he is today.
