Few words in the art world sound better than “masterpiece” and “free,” both of which are part of this outstanding series of opportunities for art lovers and their families.
Running through Sunday, September 4, at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, is a series of entertaining and informative films that “document the Louvre’s study days, in which works by five major artists were collected together, removed from their frames, and set on easels to replicate the feel of an artist’s studio,” the museum writes.
Filmed in 2012, the five episodes will be shown — free of charge — to the public at the museum’s Kahn Auditorium beginning Sunday, July 24, at 2 p.m. Each successive episode will be shown on the following Sundays, August 7, August 14, August 28, and September 4. The museum continues, “Curators, historians, restorers, and scientists from around the world came to examine and discuss [the works] in total freedom. These films listen in on their conversations about artists’ objectives, techniques, and compositional changes. Engaging animations explain and simplify complex language and concepts.”
