Antique poster exhibition shows Hinsdale’s ties to the art world


Hinsdale Village’s connection to the art world dates back to before its founding in the mid-19th century.
Born in 1862, Marie Louise Fuller (later known by the stage name Loïe Fuller) was a pioneer of the modern dance movement and demonstrated her talents at the age of four at the Chicago Academy of Music.
Loïe was the granddaughter of Jacob Fuller, who moved his family from New York in the late 1830s to a piece of land west of the swampland surrounding what was then Fort Dearborn; This land became the small settlement of Fullersburg and later north Hinsdale and the south side of Oak Brook.
Over the weekend of February 1-3, the Hinsdale Historical Society commemorated Loïe Fuller’s contribution to the art world by hosting an antique poster exhibition in Immanuel Hall dedicated to the late Beverly Erickson, whose private collection of more than 20 original Loie works . posters adorned the walls of the event.
Many of the posters were offered for sale alongside a collection of late 19th- and early 20th-century artworks provided by Triad Art Group, an art dealer founded and owned by Hinsdalean Greg Bloch and curated by his daughter Hope Lloyd Brown.
“We’re trying to bring history to life in Hinsdale,” Brown said in his interview with Doings.
Although Loïe Fuller was born in what is now Hinsdale, her heart is in Paris, the source of much of the artwork exhibited and sold, Brown said.
The exhibition covered nearly half a century of art, dating from the La Belle Époque movement in France from the 1870s to the days leading up to World War I.
“There are things I can never sell,” Bloch said. “I’m a collector and dealer… but when it comes to art, you’re just a keeper.”
