For the first time in a decade, the Kimbell has published an updated, comprehensive guide to its renowned collection of masterpieces, timed to coincide with the highly anticipated opening of the new Renzo Piano Pavilion. Now available in the Museum Shop, the book highlights more than 250 works of art from the Museum’s permanent collection, ranging from ancient to modern times and including paintings and sculpture by artists such as Caravaggio, Bernini, Cézanne, and Matisse; important Egyptian and classical antiquities; and exquisite Asian, Precolumbian, and African works. Each piece is illustrated and accompanied by informative text written by the Kimbell’s curatorial staff and other leading scholars. The elegantly designed book features new photography of all the Kimbell’s recent acquisitions, including a rare eighth-century Japanese Gigaku Mask; the first painting by Michelangelo to enter an American collection, The Torment of Saint Anthony; Guercino’s majestic Christ and the Woman of Samaria; Poussin’s stately Sacrament of Ordination, and two monumental Maya Palenque-style censer stands.
