Saturday Art: Art Institute of Chicago, Finale

Fabric fragment

Description of Fragment

As we explored last Saturday,  next to last Saturday, and the one before, an excellent collection of art from Precolumbian Mesoamerica, South and Central America, contained at the Art Institute of Chicago, will be the subject of the post today.   There are many more, but we’ve spent a month there and will move on to other subjects next week.

There are no substitutes for visiting this collection, and the Institute’s many others, but this will give some idea of what you should enjoy when you can.

If you click on a picture you will enlarge it.
