Art represents the triumph over chaos, just as pulled-pork donuts represent the triumph over dignity. Expand your tastes with today's Groupon: for $35, you get $75 worth of antique prints at Morpho Gallery on North Damen.
Morpho Gallery’s antique prints collection is an aged assortment of hand-colored etchings, lithographs, and chromo-lithographs. Tickle a time-delayed funny bone with a full-page illustration from a 1905 issue of the French humor magazine Le Rire, whose pages were sprinkled with wig jokes and snarky references to celebrity croissants ($55–$75). Walls get dressed with a series of hand-colored metal-plate prints by illustrator JJ Grandville, which depict men with animal heads acting out dramatic scenes, including duels and visits to the podiatrist ($55–$125). Or hang a 1790 botanical diagram of a breadfruit tree by F.J. Bertuch to satisfy real-life nature fans with its scientific accuracy and convincing yeasty smell ($75).
