I have to admit that I am not a fervid aficionado of railroads, but I want to report that the exhibition “Art in the Age of Steam: Europe, America and the Railway, 1830-1960” at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is well worth a visit.
There are works of art I have never seen before and great paintings that are not usually lent by individuals and museums throughout the world.
I plan to return several times to get my fill of this show, and I hope railroad buffs will be joined by art lovers in seeing the works brought together by this exhibition. Don’t miss it!
Editor’s note: “Art in the Age of Steam” continues through Jan. 18 at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
