Now on view at the Kimbell, a new installation of the museum’s internationally renowned permanent collection showcases the museum’s commitment to excellence and invites patrons to experience the depth, diversity, and refinement of its extraordinary assembly of masterworks.
“Museums are forged from curiosity and generosity, and the Kimbell is one of the most perfect and eloquent examples of the quest for the ideal,” said Guillaume Kientz, curator of European art. “Masterpiece after masterpiece, even the smallest object in the collection has the power to invoke the widest humanity, the oldest civilization, and the most coveted treasure. Dialogues of colors, shapes, and details build visual bridges among cultures, astonish visitors, and foster admiration for human creativity.”
Objects from the collection appear in thoughtful dialogue throughout the world-renowned Louis I. Kahn Building. With its open layout and emphasis on natural light as a vital part of illumination, this iconic building is the optimal space for an in-depth exploration of this selection of masterpieces.
