Trammell & Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art
This fine collection of Asian art includes more than 300 paintings, sculptures and architectural items that have been part of the personal collection of real estate czar Trammell Crow and his wife for more than 30 years. Although originally acquired for personal enjoyment, many pieces in this vast collection are museum quality. Highlights include a 120-item exhibit from the Crows' 1,200 piece Chinese jade collection, the world's second-largest impeccable crystal ball (19th century Japanese), plus several Japanese paintings and antique Indian stone statues. Although some objects date from 3,500 B.C, most are less than 400 years old. Adjacent to the museum you will find the Trammel Crow Center with its shaded sculpture garden featuring delights such as Rodin's Genius of Eternal Rest, Maillol's Nymph With Flowers and Bourdelle's Horse for Alvear Monument. Admission to the museum is free.
It had wonderful Asiatic art from, India to China, and it's free! The best piece was the wooden facade. The atmosphere was practically silent to allow people to view the art in quiet contemplation. Be sure to sign your thanks to the Trammels and Margaret Crow for bringing their collection to Dallas.
