Kimbell to host Modern Masters exhibit

The Kimbell Art Museum is preparing to debut “The Age of Picasso and Matisse: Modern Masters,” on loan from the Art Institute of Chicago.

 

The collection spans nearly 100 works---- including both paintings and sculptures --- and sees the Fort Worth museum as the first to host the collection. The exhibition will coincide with the opening of the museum’s Renzo Piano Pavilion and will run from Oct. 6, 2013 through Feb. 16, 2014.

 

"The modern holdings at the Art Institute are among the greatest in the world, and we are honored and thrilled to be the chosen venue for this exhibition," said Kimbell Director Eric M. Lee in a news release.

 

On the heels of the Kimbell's 2008 Impressionist exhibition also from the Art Institute, the new exhibit tells the story of European art in the first half of the 20th century through the holdings of one of the world's foremost encyclopedic museums.

The exhibition will survey art movements that shaped the history of modern art.

 

"Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse are the critical figures of early modern art," said George T. M. Shackelford, the Kimbell's deputy director.  "We are pleased to be able to show 10 works by each of these men, who were friends and rivals for decades." 

 

The Kimbell Art Museum, owned and operated by the Kimbell Art Foundation, showcases collections ranging in period from antiquity to the 20th century and including European masterpieces by artists such as Michelangelo, Monet and Picasso; collections of Egyptian and classical antiquities; and Asian, Mesoamerican and African art.
