The Art Institute of Chicago opens “Impressionism, Fashion and Modernity,” an exhibit jointly organized by the museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Musee d’Orsay, Paris, on June 26.

The exhibit, which features 75 figure paintings by Impressionists and their contemporaries, opened in Paris in October 2012, where it set attendance records. It aims to tell the story of the evolution of fashion in late 19th-century Paris and how that inspired artists like Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Gorges Seurat and Edgar Degas.

Museum admission and hour information, including information about extended summer hours, can be found here.
