If you’re going to be in Chicago, Illinois anytime between June 26- September 22, I strongly recommend you take a look at the Claude Monet Art Exhibit being held at the Art Institute of Chicago.
For those of you who don’t know Monet, Claude Monet was a French impressionist painter. In fact, the term ‘impressionism’ came from his painting ‘Impression Sunrise.’ One of his paintings sold in 2008 for a record 41.4 million dollars, he also held the record before that at 36.5 million dollars. The current record for Monet’s painting is $80,451,178. Craziness!
