Meet the Rockefeller’s Art Collection at the Kimbell Art Museum Exhibition


A collection, featuring the rare Asian art from the US country, will appear at Fort Worth this summer. All of these items give a rare look into the vision of two collectors- Mr. and Mrs. Rockefellers.

The Asian collection, hosted by Jennifer Kasler Price, will be presented at the Kimbell Art Museum exhibition starting from June 27 to September 5. The exposition will include various bronzes, ceramics, and metalwork that Rockefellers were collecting between the 1940s and 1970s. In addition, the masterpieces feature Buddha, Shiva, Lotus, Dragon. You will discover 67 items from Rockefeller’s gift to the Asiatic Society Museum, with Chinese vases made of porcelain and Asian sculptures that are the highlights of the exhibition.

John D. Rockefeller III spent his childhood in an environment filled with Asian art. His father adored Chinese porcelain, and his mother, in turn, created an Asian garden and decorated it with art. However, the Rockefellers loved Japan, their collection includes works of art from China, Korea, India, and Vietnam to highlight the cultural histories of Asia. They both wanted to share this artistic legacy with as many people as possible.

The exhibition will be followed by a fully illustrated catalog that is available for 50 dollars in the museum stores or on the website.
