There is great cause for celebration: some museums are opening in person at last! One notable highlight is “El Greco: Ambition and Defiance” at The Art Institute of Chicago.


According to the museum’s web site, “By charting the development of his remarkable style across 57 artworks, including large-scale canvases and more intimate panel paintings and sculptures, the exhibition reveals El Greco as a socially and artistically ambitious striver who expected his immense talents to be appropriately acknowledged and rewarded.”


Please remember to verify that the museum is indeed able to be open on the day of your planned visit.
