Don’t See Faces of Impressionism at the Kimbell Art Museum

I don’t usually advise against seeing an art exhibit, but I strongly recommend not seeing Faces of Impressionism: Portraits from the Musée d’Orsay at the Kimbell Art Museum. I would very much like you to see one of van Gogh’s self portraits, or the ballet dancers by Degas, or the magnificent bust of Victor Hugo by Rodin, or the piano players by Renoir. Unfortunately for all art patrons, the Kimbell Art Museum has stuffed these worldly gems in a closet called the Renzo Piano Pavilion. And if that wasn’t enough, the museum is cramming in paying patrons as fast as they can. I would prefer to see an exhibit at a sardine factory. Oh wait, I did. Continue reading
