Dreams and Echoes Features More than 100 Works Spanning Five Centuries from the Collection of David and Celia Hilliard

The Art Institute of Chicago is pleased to present Dreams and Echoes: Drawings and Sculpture in the David and Celia Hilliard Collection, an exhibition of 115 works on paper and small sculptures, ranging in date from the 16th to the late 20th century. The exhibition, on view from October 20, 2013 to February 16, 2014 in the Jean and Steven Goldman Prints and Drawings Galleries in the Richard and Mary L. Gray Wing of the Art Institute, showcases the wide range of the Hilliards’ interests, from well-known artists such as Edgar Degas and Henri Matisse to 17th-century Dutch landscape artists to the visionary work of the Symbolists. Drawn from one of the most significant private collections in Chicago, Dreams and Echoes represents 40 years of a shared enterprise and the unerring eyes of the Hilliards, who have followed their intellectual curiosity to acquire strong examples of French, German, and British art across many periods, with a particular focus on the late 19th century. Alongside the work of its acknowledged masters, there is also the fresh perspective of the less familiar but startling and distinctive art of the Symbolists, precursors to the modern and heralds of a revolutionary change in style and subject matter.
