An exhibit of French impressionist masterpieces including works by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet and Edgar Degas is making its only U.S. stop at a Fort Worth museum.

The 72 works in the exhibit opening Sunday at the Kimbell Art Museum come from the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Mass. With an expansion under way at the Clark, the museum has put part of its collection on tour.

"The Age of Impressionism: Great French Paintings from the Clark" runs through June 17.

The exhibit features 21 works by Renoir. George T.M. Shackelford, deputy director of the Kimbell, calls Renoir's works the "great palpitating heart" of the exhibit.

The Clark collection was amassed by Sterling Clark, an heir to the Singer sewing machine fortune, and his wife.
