Once again, a Sunday at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth is a treat for the eyes. Baroque (early 1600s) Gian Lorenzo Bernini produced Rome's spectacular fountains in the Piazza Navona and the angels on the Ponte Sant'Angelo. The Kimbell exhibition features forty terracotta sketch models and thirty drawings, all lovely in their own right. After viewing this show, I was ready to pack my bags for Rome to see Bernini's glorious work in all its marble glory.
