Fort Worth.

I also saw two of the many museums in Fort Worth, the Kimbell and the Amon Carter. Here are a few pieces I could take photos of...
A Guatemalan vessel from the Early Classic period, 250-600 AD (above).

"The Cheat with the Ace of Clubs" by Georges de La Tour, circa 1630 (above).

A Matisse (above) and a Miró (below).

This one was my favorite of the day. A Landscape in wood by George Morrison, 1967.

The Kimbell ArtMuseum was designed by architect Louis Kahn and it was the last of his work he ever saw completed. It's just an amazing building.

And the Amon Carter Museum of American Art is just as beautiful. They had an exhibition, "To See as Artists See...American Art from the Phillips Collection" and they have eight photographs from Seattle photographer, Edward Curtis in their permanent collection. The latter was especially nice after seeing Tim Egan speak about his book on Curtis just a couple of weeks ago.
