This intimate gallery comprised of ten paintings focuses on prominent Chicago citizens and the portraits they commissioned during the late-19th and early-20th centuries.

​This intimate gallery focuses on prominent Chicago citizens and portraits they commissioned during the late-19th and early-20th centuries, when both newly wealthy and established elite sought out artists who could highlight their social standing and personal affluence. The portraits of Gilded Age Chicagoans—with familiar names like McCormick, Field, Pullman, and Nickerson—are hung where the Nickerson family originally displayed their art and design collection.

Presented as part of Art Design Chicago.
