Courtesy of the Art Institute of Chicago
The tiny but joy-filled Thorne Minuture Rooms are back, trimmed in historic holiday finery. This year, the New Orleans and New Mexico rooms join the festive tradition, and the never-before-seen Americana Room from Marshall Field V¿s private collection will also be displayed. Here's a shot of the Virginia Entrance Hall, 1751-55, c. 1940.
