Story Behind the Painting

This scene is of the historic landmark, Buckingham Fountain in Chicago's South Loop. The Fountain, one of the largest in the world, is located at Columbus Drive (301 East) and Congress Parkway (500 South) in Grant Park. It was modeled after one at Versailles not Buckingham Palace as some people think. This view includes the Sears Tower peeking behind the CNA building.
