Recent exhibits at the Kimbell Art Museum have included works from the Musée d’Orsay, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and private collections around the country. The Kimbell’s latest hails from closer to home. Much closer.
The Collection of Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass is a group of 37 paintings and sculptures collected by the matriarch and patriarch of the influential Bass family.
Some of the names –– Chagall, Matisse, Monet, Renoir, van Gogh –– are familiar to the museum. Many others, including Rothko, Poliakoff, and Riopelle, are typically found across the street.
