FORT WORTH, TX.- The Kimbell Art Museum has added to its collection an exquisite oil sketch by the British artist Richard Parkes Bonington (1802–1828), "The Grand Canal, Venice, Looking Toward the Rialto", painted on the spot in 1826. Its purchase was announced today by the Kimbell’s director, Dr. Eric M. Lee.  “The opportunity to acquire one of Bonington’s beautiful oil sketches of Venice is extremely rare. Only eight are known, four of which were already in museum collections before the present one was acquired by the Kimbell. This is an exciting acquisition for us, from both aesthetic and art-historical points of view, and we know it will give great pleasure to our visitors.” Dr. Lee commented.
