The Art of Texas: 250 Years
Come appreciate Texas art! We’ll take a look at Texas art from Spanish colonial paintings to the late twentieth century with Ron Tyler, editor of The Art of Texas: 250 Years. Tyler will delve into the major changes in Texas art from the European-style works of the colonial era to the gritty regionalism, surrealism, and modernism of the 1930s and 1940s. A book signing will follow the discussion.
Ron Tyler is the retired director of the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth, Texas, and former professor of history and director of the Texas State Historical Association at the University of Texas at Austin. He is the editor-in-chief of The New Handbook of Texas and the Southwestern Historical Quarterly. He has published a number of works in the areas of American, Western American, Texan, and Mexican art and history.
