history Arthur Jerome Eddy (1859-1920) was a collector of modern art, critic, lawyer and financier.

Eddy’s collection included early-20th-century avant-garde painting and printmaking and included work by, among others, Vasily Kandinsky, Whistler, Édouard Manet, Rodin, Arthur Dove, Albert Bloch, Gabriele Münter, Franz Marc, André Derain, Maurice de Vlaminck, Emilie Charmy, André Dunoyer de Segonzac, Robert Genin, Auguste Herbin, Amadeo de Sousa-Cardozo and Eugène Zak.

Eddy's collection was dispersed after his death and in 1931; twenty works from his collection were given to the Art Institute of Chicago by his widow, Mrs. Lucy “Lulu” Crapo Orrell Eddy (1863-1931) and his son, Jerome Orrell Eddy (b.1891).
