Inscriptions from TX.FW.KAM

Since its founding in 1965 with the sizable art collection left by Texas businessman Kay Kimbell, the Kimbell Art Museum has followed his testamentary mandate to create "a museum of the first class" by prioritizing quality over quantity and not attempting to cover all areas. The choice collection of some 350 works of art includes objects from the third millennium BCE to the mid-twentieth century, the date at which the collection of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth begins, and omits American art, the focus on the neighboring Amon Carter Museum. The few antiquities include an Attic red-figure cup of the late antique period by the Douris painter depicting in a tondo on the interior a maenad with an acclamatory label.
