Oil Jar: Achilles Avenging Patroclos


The Greeks: Agamemnon to Alexander
CHICAGO, UNITED STATES  •  The Field Museum  •  25 November 2015 - 10 April 2016
The Greeks—Agamemnon to Alexander the Great draws from the collections of 21 museums throughout Greece, making it the largest exhibition of its kind to tour North America in 25 years. Spanning 5,000 years of Greek history and culture, the exhibition presents stories of individuals from its origins in Neolithic villages through its expansion during the conquests of Alexander the Great. The Greeks is making the first of two U.S. stops at The Field, and its appearance is the result of a first-of-its-kind partnership between The Field Museum and co-presenter, the National Hellenic Museum.

A Voyage to South America: Andean Art in the Spanish Empire
CHICAGO, UNITED STATES  •  The Art Institute of Chicago  •  12 September 2015 - 21 February 2016

Fourteen paintings and related works on paper—including pieces from the collection of Chicagoans Marilynn and Carl Thoma never before displayed in a museum, as well as important loans from the Newberry Library and Denver Art Museum—introduce visitors to explorers, artists, and patrons who lived in the Spanish-governed Andes during the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries.

The metaphorical guide of this journey is Antonio de Ulloa (1716–95), a Spanish naval officer and cartographer who traveled to South America with a French scientific mission in the 1730s and 1740s. His portrait introduces the group of works assembled—paintings of identified sitters, signal works by important South American artists, and devotional paintings that include historical figures.
