Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth

Today we visited the Kimbell Museum of Art in Fort Worth, Texas. This is a private museum of art works from mostly European art. A few samples of South American, Chinese and Japanese art are also displayed as part of the exhibit. The museum has been maintained in an impeccable condition and access to the private collection is free. That sounds amazing considering the fact that it takes a lot of money to maintain the museum. Even parking is free. I would say it is well worth a visit. There are some rare pieces of art including Michelangelo's first painting, Picasso and Caravaggio's works too.
Here are some pictures from the Museum...
