POP ART & MORE
When one thinks of Roy Lichtenstein, one always conjures the image of an oversized comic strip with bold pops of color. But take a closer look at his astoundingly creative work and see it illuminate Lichtenstein as the innovator and social commentator.

In North America see works on display at the Art Institute of Chicago, Museum of Modern Art in New York and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC - all within close proximity to Sofitel.

CHICAGO DESIGN
Fans of LifeIsMagnifique will know that we frequently feature art and literature finds from around the Sofitel world.
We snapped this image at Sofitel Chicago Water Tower, a perfect symbol of French heritage and cutting edge design. In fact architect Jean-Paul Viguier (whose design is pictured) was allowed to start from scratch when creating the hotel, and the result is striking — a dramatic bright white wedge-shaped building with an emphasis on bright and modern space. Magnifique!

ART WEEKEND

image

French Post-Impressionist painter Georges-Pierre Seurat spent over 2 years creating what is probably considered the best example of pointillism in art history. A Sunday Afternoon on  the Island of La Grande Jatte has been a staple of the Art Institute of Chicago since 1924, just around the corner from Sofitel Chicago Water Tower. The perfect art weekend!
