Kimbell Art Museum
Louis I. Kahn's iconic vaulted building is home to one of the most important collections of American-collected European art. Opened in 1972, The Kimbell’s masterpieces include Michelangelo's first known painting, The Torment of Saint Anthony—the only painting by the master on exhibit in all of the Americas. You'll also see works by Caravaggio, Rubens, Poussin, Rembrandt, Gainsborough, Monet, Matisse, Picasso, and many others. The 2013 Renzo Piano Pavilion was built 65 yards away from the original museum (so it would not disturb the tranquility of Kahn's original design) and is home to a changing display of some of the museum's most treasured works.
