ENJOY A VIRTUAL TOUR OF FORT WORTH’S KIMBELL ART MUSEUM

|

If you enjoy learning about famous artists, then don't miss taking a virtual tour of the Kimbell Art Museum. Nestled in nearby Fort Worth, it offers a look at the masterpieces, conservation methods, and videos of past lectures. Here are some of the works you can see from your home at our apartments in Keller:

WALKING FLOWER

Walking Flower is a 20th century sculpture by Fernand Léger. He lived in the United States during World War II, where he began using bold patterns of color. Walking Flower is one of the pieces during this period of creativity. It's boldly colored on one side, black and white on the other, and is a "spirit of humor, play, and joyfulness."

LANDSCAPE AT LE CANNET

Painted by Pierre Bonnard, Landscape at Le Cannet highlights the scenic hill above his home. Placing himself in the right foreground, he's surrounded by goats, a cow, and dozens of spiky plants. The painting was meant for a serious art collector on the outskirts of Paris.

LA POINTE DE LA HÈVE AT LOW TIDE

Painted by Claude Monet in 1865, La Pointe de la Hève at Low Tide is one of the two landscapes that launched his storied career. Both the horses and figures on the beach also appeared in his other works in the 1860s.

STANDING ANCESTOR FIGURE

Dating back to the early 1800s, the Standing Ancestor Figure highlights the work of a Maori tribe in New Zealand. Intricately carved, it may have been placed on a gable peak of an assembly house or a food storehouse. The rough edges suggest that the artists cut the spirals with stone before the introduction of steel knives in the early 19th century.

The Kimbell Art Museum is just one of the renowned attractions near our Keller apartments. If you would like to call Olympus Town Center home, please contact us. We will gladly discuss all that we have to offer.
