Kimbell’s Exhibit “Flesh and Blood” extended through July!

HUGE NEWS! The Kimbell Art Museum — a Fort Worth Gem and easily one of the finest small art museums in the nation, has announced that their extraordinarly collection of Italian rennaisance paintings is sticking around for a few more weeks! The special exhibition Flesh and Blood—featuring nearly forty masterpieces from the Capodimonte Museum in Naples, one of the most important fine arts collections in Italy—is extended through July!

 

This incredible gathering of pictures will be a journey through the major artistic achievements of Italian Renaissance and Baroque painting, featuring captivating stories, from Christian martyrdom to mythological passion, and diverse formats and purposes, from the intimacy of private devotion to the grandeur of state portraiture. Captured masterfully by the greatest talents of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, including Titian, Raphael, El Greco, Annibale Carracci, Artemisia Gentileschi, Jusepe Ribera, and Luca Giordano, these extraordinarily beautiful scenes can be moving or imposing, violent, extravagant, or even seductive.

The Renaissance paintings in the Capodimonte Museum come from the collections of the Farnese family, among the richest and most powerful Italian clans during the sixteenth century. Their destiny was secured by the election of Alessandro Farnese as Pope

Paul III in 1534, and their impressive palace in Rome embodied their ambition and glory. The Farnese were exceptional patrons, commissioning works from the most prestigious artists of their time. As a result of dynastic alliances, some of their greatest paintings came to Naples, including portraits of Alessandro by Raphael and (after his coronation as Pope) by Titian.

The Capodimonte collection’s second major component, Baroque painting, has a more local origin. In the seventeenth century, Naples was one of the largest, richest, and liveliest cities in Europe, far more cosmopolitan than Paris or London. Artists—both native-born and foreign—took advantage of this situation, making works of the Neapolitan school of painting among the most relevant and desired.

The show will draw from the best of both the Renaissance and Baroque holdings of the museum, starting with the famous portrait of the elegant beauty Antea by Parmigianino and the ravishing Danaë painted by Titian for the pope’s grandson, Cardinal Alessandro Farnese. Annibale Carracci’s Pietà and Guido Reni’s Atalanta and Hippomenes will face off against Ribera’s Drunken Silenus and Giovanni Battista Caracciolo’s Virgin of the Purgatory in a contest of Northern Italian classicism versus Neapolitan Caravaggism. An additional and exceptional Caravaggio loan, The Flagellation of Christ, exhibits the artist’s powerful influence on the painters of Naples, including on Gentileschi and Massimo Stanzione, who bring colors—including blood red—to the dark and violent world of Neapolitan tenebrism, leading to the seductive Baroque style. Giovan Battista Recco, Giovanni Battista Ruppolo and Andrea Belvedere will lure all eyes with their magnificent and somehow mysterious still lifes, their flowers bravely blooming against the tumultuous historical tapestry of patrons, painters and paintings woven in 17th-century Naples.

Museum of Science & History postpones Reopen

UPDATED July 7:

Given the spike in COVID-19 cases in the Metroplex during the last two weeks, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to delay the reopening of our Museum, originally planned for mid-July. 

We have been preparing for our reopening since the day the Museum closed its doors and have been working hard to continue to offer fun, safe experiences during these challenging times. However, as a responsible member of the community we need to respect the recommendation of healthcare professionals to eliminate unnecessary visitor contact.

We will continue to prepare for our eventual reopening and we will keep you informed. Although our doors remain closed, we will continue to offer fun, educational content for you and your family through the Discovery Lab Online video series and customized Online Field Trips. For the latest updates regarding our reopening timeline, please continue to visit our website at fwmuseum.org.

Thank you for continuing to support us throughout this time. We look forward to welcoming you back to experience the excitement of science and history as soon as we can.
