ARTS SIG EVENT: Botticelli to Braque

Masterpieces from the National Gallery of Scotland at the Kimbell Art Museum(Renzo Piano Pavilion)

Join the Arts Shared Interest Group on Friday, September 11, 2015, at 5:00 pm, for a guided tour of the Kimbell Art Museum's spectacular exhibit "Botticelli to Braque; Masterpieces from the National Gallery of Scotland".

This exhibition presents fifty-five paintings from the three institutions that make up the National Galleries of Scotland in Edinburgh: The Scottish National Gallery, founded in 1850 and housed in an impressive neoclassical building designed by one of the country's foremost architects, William Henry Playfair (1789-1857); the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, which opened in 1889; and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, which opened in 1960. Bringing masterpieces from these three separate museums into one presentation permits an experience that is possible only during their current tour. The paintings that were chosen for this exhibition include examples by some of the best-known and most accomplished European and American artists and span more than 400 years of art history, from the Renaissance to the modern age.

Please purchase your half-price admission tickets to the exhibit at the Museum's Box Office prior to our tour. The tour will be limited to 20 members.
