About the Book
More than a quarter of a century ago, critic and author Michael Ennis observed that “there is no comprehensive work on Texas art; there has never been an exhibition offering more than a cursory overview of Texas art from the nineteenth century to the present.” But appreciation for Texas art has undergone a genuine renaissance, with collectors, museums, and the public paying more attention to it than ever before. The Art of Texas: 250 Years tells this story, beginning with key Spanish colonial paintings related to Texas and moving through two and a half centuries of art in Texas.
This event is hosted by TCU Press and the Center for Texas Studies at TCU.
