Yesterday we went to the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth. The museum building was built in 2001 and was designed by Philip Johnson. The collection features Remington, Russell and other iconic American artists, including Bierstadt, Church, Moran and other Hudson River school painters, and of course Catlin. Its collections are very extensive and include many fine American artists we were not familiar with, including some which i would think extremely rare.
Texas is a rather amazing mix of country and city, high culture and the common, business and the arts. Overheard while waiting to have a prescription filled at a local Wallgreens:
