Art Institute of Chicago
Other highlights included El Greco's "Assumption", "the Crucifixion" by Zurbaran, the incredibly beautiful Ayala Altarpiece (I couldn't find a picture of this one online) and Paris Street: Rainy Day.
The Greek and Roman sections were amazing - particularly after watching the Teaching Company's Archaeology series. There were numerous Greek vases and a category of Roman art I was unfamiliar with - glasswork. Interesting!
Oops - I almost forgot to mention the incredible miniatures, which I posted about here.
