As a result of this co...   [more]

Among Allerton’s gifts to the museum in the 1920s were...   [more]

An artist, an exotic dancer, and a priest get on a boat in New York. This sounds like the setup for a joke, but it was actually the catalyst for a major painting in the Art Institute’s collection of modern art.
