Taft Gets Props

In the Fall 2008 posting of Forbesflash.com — the Web site of Forbes Magazine — Kip Forbes, vice chairman of the company and son of founder Malcolm Forbes, includes Cincinnati's Taft Museum among the list of his nine favorite U.S. art museums.

Kip Forbes, like his father an art aficionado, studied art history at Princeton and has written several books on the subject. He chose Taft because: "(It) is a jewel filled with Old Masters from Rembrandt to Whistler in a house built by the family of our 27th President."

Other museums on his list, none in Ohio, include San Francisco's de Young Museum, Detroit Institute of Arts, Pasadena's The Huntington, Atlanta's The High Museum, The Frick and the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum of Oklahoma City.
