“Sargent and the Sea:” Houston MFA ExhibitApril 29, 2010
They’re running two shows of his works in different exhibition spaces. One is a traveling show “Sargent and the Sea,” and the other “Houston’s Sargents” which presents more of his works from the MFA and local collections. It’s a fantastic show on both counts, and I recommend it highly. No photos were allowed, unfortunately, but I did pick up some swag in the form of the catalog book shown above. “Houston’s Sargents” ends next weekend, and the other runs through May.
If you make it to Houston, drive up the I-10 to Columbus to see even more good stuff.
P.S. I also picked up some cool refrigerator magnets of Frederick Remington paintings from their book store. The “The Herd Boy” painting of snow seemed ideal for the fridge.
