Lichtenstein at Art Institute of Chicago

The Art Institute of Chicago has acquired nearly 800 European prints and drawings from Old Master to modern. It also obtained 150 works from China, Korea, and Japan, including stoneware, porcelains, and printed books.

The works are gifts from Massachusetts collector Dorothy Braude Edinburg. They are joining her long-term loans and prior gifts to the Art Institute. Those include Japanese and Chinese ceramics and more than 100 works by such artists as Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso, and Henri Matisse.

Art Institute President Douglas Druick is calling the latest gifts from Edinburg one of the most significant in the museum's history.

Edinburg's latest gifts include Federico Zuccaro's Coronation of the Virgin, considered by some the most important drawing by the artist in any North American collection.
