The Kimbell Art Museum is a comprehensive art museum that houses a small, but superb collection of 350 works of art, as well as an extensive research library and various educational programs. Designed by renowned architect Louis I. Kahn, the building is recognized as a significant work of architecture, particularly for the natural, silvery light that flows across the vaulted gallery ceilings.
The museum’s collection consists of European works from the classical period, including Gainsborough, Fra Angelico, and Mantegna, as well as antiquities from Egypt, Greece, and Rome. An Asian collection features paintings, sculptures bronzes, and ceramics while famous works by Picasso, Monet, Matisse, and Mondrian make for a special treat. The museum boasts a substantial research library that consists of nearly 60,000 books, periodicals, and auction catalogs, resources that are readily available to faculty members, graduate students, and art historians.
