The Age of Picasso and Matisse: Modern Masters from The Art Institute of Chicago

The Age of Picasso and Matisse: Modern Masters from The Art Institute of Chicago
FORT WORTH, TEXAS  •  Kimbell Art Museum  •  6 October 2013 - 16 February 2014
Following upon the success of the Kimbell’s 2008 exhibition of Impressionist masterworks from the Art Institute, The Age of Picasso and Matisse tells the story of European art in the first half of the 20th century through the Chicago museum's holdings.

A wide variety of artists from across Europe are represented in the exhibition, including major figures from Germany, Italy, Russia, and Spain. Romanian-born sculptor Constantin Brancusi moved to Paris in 1904. Over the next 20 years, his sculpture grew increasingly stylized and simplified, as shown in his inspired Golden Bird of 1919–20, purchased by the American art collector John Quinn and acquired by the Arts Club of Chicago in 1926. Inspired by a mythical creature in Romanian legend, it is one of three sculptures by Brancusi in the exhibition.

The Catalan painter Joan Miró is represented by six examples, including the large-scale Policeman of 1925, inspired by dreams.
