Chicago Disasters: Paintings by Eric Edward Esper








Chicago Disasters: Paintings by Eric Edward Esper

Paintings depicting tragic events in Chicago's history.
My newest body of paintings depicts events with a more local, historically tragic significance, depicting scenes of the darkest hours in Chicago’s history, where the cityscape became the backdrop for tragedy and calamity. These events that irrevocably altered so many lives are important to remember, not only for the people lost and how it affected our culture, but also to remind us that disaster can occur at any time, anywhere.
