This folio is presented as both an introduction to this collection and as a survey of the styles, subjects, and themes of Western art of the last two centuries, from the linear classicism of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres through the optical studies of Claude Monet and the Impressionists; from the lyrical, colorful abstractions of Vasily Kandinsky to the fractured picture planes of Pablo Picasso and the Cubists; from the enigmatic compositions of Salvador Dali and the Surrealists to the media-appropriated Pop-art portraits of Andy Warhol. These magnificent paintings eloquently narrate the discussions of the nature of art, quality, innovation, style, and form that have defined the modern era in art history. Today a number of these paintings are revered as icons of modern Western culture, emblems of the inspired experimentation that has taken place on both sides of the Atlantic. For the last century, the Art Institute has supported the achievements of the most distinguished artists from Europe and America, acquiring and exhibiting now-beloved works of Edgar Degas, Henri Matisse, Georgia OKeeffe, Jackson Pollock, and others. Included in this collection are numerous masterpieces of realism, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Surrealism, Cubism, Abstract Expressionism, and other aspects of modernism. The Art Institute of Chicago houses some of the most celebrated European and American paintings from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Благодаря своей репутации, как продюсера "Blood, Swea a d ears " и "Bucki ghams" Гурсио подписал "Chicago" на "Columbia records" в январе 1969 года. В этом же году вышел первый альбом группы, на котором чувствовалось влияние джаза. Хотя он ни разу не попал в Топ 10, тем не менее, оставался в американских чартах в течение 171 недели. Также пользовались популярностью синглы "Does A ybody Really K ow Wha ime I Is?" и "Begi i gs". В 1970 группа сократила свое название до "Chicago". Все еще работая в стиле джаз-рок, они выпустили "Chicago II". В дальнейшем, за редкими исключениями каждый из альбомов группы получал свой порядковый номер. Обложка каждого диска представляла собой различную интересную обработку эмблемы группы, и многие из них поимели награды за свой дизайн. В начале 70-х "Чикаго" начали отходить от своего джазового саунда к мэйнстриму, в результате чего получались такие знаменитые вещи, как "Colour My World", трансатлантический хит 1976 года "If You Leave Me ow" и № 1 в 1982 году "Hard o Say I'm Sorry".
