I had a replicate of Edward Hopper's 'Nighthawks' on my wall for about five years because it is my favorite painting. I always knew that is was at the Art Institute of Chicago and although I would not go to Chicago specifically to see the painting, I knew immediately that seeing this was the first priority of my Chicago trip (and you thought it was the conference...). My disappointment was indescribably great as I learned yesterday in the room of the painting that it is lent out to a museum in London until mid-January. So now I have to go to London before mid-January, perhaps a good excuse for Christmas shopping.
