FORT WORTH, TX.- The Amon Carter Museum presents Masterworks of American Photography: Moments in Time, on view through January 3, 2010. Journey through photography’s history in an exhibition of works from the medium’s early years to the present day. Taken together, these images from the Carter’s permanent collection reflect the diversity and richness of an American visual tradition and explore photography’s unique relationship to time. The exhibition includes a number of recent acquisitions from the Stieglitz Circle that relate to the passing of time in works that range from enduring still lifes to fleeting moments captured on film. This display of Masterworks of American Photography is supported by Canon U.S.A. and Fort Worth Camera.

The Amon Carter Museum was established through the generosity of Amon G. Carter Sr. (1879–1955) to house his collection of paintings and sculpture by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell; to collect, preserve, and exhibit the finest examples of American art; and to serve an educational role through exhibitions, publications, and programs devoted to the study of American art.

A self-made man, Amon G. Carter (1879–1955) became a legendary figure in Texas history and Fort Worth’s leading citizen and champion. His interest in the art of Remington and Russell developed through his friendship with Will Rogers. Mr. Carter’s will provided for the establishment of a museum in Fort Worth, free and open to the public, devoted to American art. “As a youth, I was denied the advantages which go with the possession of money,” he stated in the will. “I am endeavoring to give to those who have not had such advantages, but who aspire to the higher and finer attributes of life, those opportunities which were denied to me.” Today, the museum he did not live to see has evolved into one of the great museums of American art.
