2014 brought a lot of new artists and artwork to the Forth Worth area. This gave viewers something to enjoy and look forward to experiencing. There were many different styles, which brought a variety that catered to all art lovers taste. Listed below are some of the popular exhibits.
Bouquets: French Still-Life Painting From Chardin to Matisse
If you enjoy French art or still-life paintings, this is an exhibit you will love. Never before has an American focused on 19th-Century French floral still-life. There are many pieces to enjoy, and the exhibit works well with the Kimbell exhibition that is from the same time period.
Art and Appetite: American Painting, Culture, and Cuisine
This exhibit takes you back to a different era. It features many well-known pieces, and perfectly combines food and history. Commerce, class, gender, politics, and race are the topics that are featured by the art in this exhibit.
However, the messages are somewhat subtle, which allows you to enjoy the pieces just for how they look and not what they are saying. Norman Rockwell’s Freedom From Want, and Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks are two the pieces you will find in this exhibit.
Samurai: Armour From the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Collection
This is a great exhibit to learn more about the Japanese and their Samurai warriors. It features samurai suits and helmets that display the excellent craftsmanship of the time. It is not something you will find just anywhere, so you really should have a look at the rare samurai suits featured here.
These are just a few of the exhibits that came to the Fort Worth area in 2014. If they are any indication of what is to come in 2015, it is going to be a beautiful, art-filled year.
