The Kimbell Art Museum has bought a great Dutch landscape to go with its great Dutch seascape. The seascape just looked so lonely, you know? Now itâ€™s part of a surf â€˜n turf pair.
The Fort Worth museum announced that it has acquired Edge of a Forest with a Grainfield, painted around 1656 by the leading master of Dutch landscapes, Jacob van Ruisdael (he always signed, never dated, his paintings, which is why their dates of origin are usually vague).Â
Renzo Piano is the star architect who's making the rounds in Fort Worth today to visit his brand new Piano Pavilion at the Kimbell Art Museum. KERA's Dane Walters produced this animated GIF of Piano throwing a Frisbee with Eric Lee, the Kimbell's director. Click on the picture and watch Piano throw that Frisbee! (You're welcome.)
One of the worldâ€™s most sought-after architects was in Fort Worth Tuesday for a preview of his latest creation. Itâ€™s the Kimbell Museumâ€™s new addition by the architect -- and it's appropriately called the Renzo Piano Pavilion.
