Milwaukee Art Museum, Milwaukee: 16 reviews and 27 photos
The Milwaukee Art Museum has been hosting some very interesting travelling art shows. In summer 2005, there was an interesting exhibit of Degas bronze sculptures. And in the fall, the museum hosted "Rembrandt and His Time," which included a slew of rarely seen drawings from the Albertina Museum in Vienna, as well as the first-ever American showing of a rare Rembrandt landscape painting, "The Good Samaritan," on loans from the Czartoryski Museum in Cracow.
My most recent visit was in February 2007 to see an exhibit of the work of 20th century British painter Francis Bacon. Pretty bleak stuff - but I think he was a real master, and his dark work looked particularly brilliant in the bright exhibit space of the Calatrava addtion.
