Casanova: The Seduction of Europe at Kimbell Art Museum  
Casanova: The Seduction of Europe explores the 18th century across Europe through the eyes of one of its most colorful characters, Giacomo Casanova (1725--1798). Renowned in modern times for his amorous pursuits, Casanova lived not only in Italy, but in France and England, and his travels took him to the Ottoman Empire and to meet Catherine the Great in Saint Petersburg. Bringing together paintings, sculpture, works on paper, furnishings, porcelains, silver and period costume, Casanova will bring this world to life. Following its display in Fort Worth, the exhibition will be on view at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. This exhibition is organized by the Kimbell Art Museum, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. It is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.

Nature/Culture at Amon Carter Museum of American Art

We often think of nature as that which stands beyond humanity and culture as that which reflects people’s achievements. But rarely is the matter so simple. This exhibition explores different facets of the dichotomy. Besides reflecting on how nature counterpoints and enlivens our built environment, the show recognizes the more problematic use of the term, and its cousin “natural,” when applied to snapshots, portraits, and Native American cultures.
Large print labels are available for use in the exhibition.

Through December 10

William Campbell Contemporary Art

Through November 25

Salvador Dali at Arlington Museum of Art

Dali was always much more than one of Surrealism’s leading figures. A virtuoso, gifted with dazzling skills and technique, Dali was a painter, designer, sculptor, writer and set designer as well as a master engraver who could produce equally outstanding work in dry point, etching, woodcut or lithography. The exhibition’s pieces de resistance are the illustrations of Dante’s The Divine Comedy, for which each of the lithographs presented required as many as 35 colors. There are a total of 100 pieces included in this exhibition.

Through January 21
