The current exhibit at Ft. Worth's Kimbell Museum is the extraordinary collection of Asian antiquities collected over a fifty year period by this couple.
Sam and Myrna Meyers, and American couple, found themselves living in Paris in 1966.
They happened into a small antique shop in a small town in Switzerland one day, according to Sam to escape a downpour, and met the shop owner, who enthusiastically educated them of how available ancient antiquities were to collect..
The chance encounter fueled what became a life long quest which ended with this couple, then of modest means, collecting over 5,000 pieces of what has become the richest all-encompassing private collection of Asian objects in the world.
Making it's debut at The Kimbell (first time in the US) are 4,000 pieces of that collection.
I was surprised at the variety of the objects
and would suggest a visit if the exhibit comes to a city near you.
