Amon Carter Museum : Michelin's recommendations
This extraordinary small museum gained international stature with its three-fold 2001 expansion by Philip Johnson, who also designed the initial International-style building in 1961. The original first floor is devoted to late oilman-publisher Amon G. Carter's peerless collection of 391 works by Charles Russell (1864-1926) and Frederic Remington (1861-1909) which provided the foundation for this museum. Highlights of this powerful pairing of the two famed Western artists include Remington's masterful A Dash for the Timber (1889) and his elegaic Fall of the Cowboy (1895). Russell works include the vivid and humorous Christmas at the Line Camp (1904) and In Without Knocking (1909).The new upper level is devoted to visiting exhibits and samplings from the rest of the Carter collection, ranging from Thomas Moran to Georgia O'Keeffe and Grant Wood. Notable is the photography collection, whose 230,000 images include works by Laura Gilpin, Eliot Porter, Richard Avedon and Robert Adams.
