Texas: 150 works from the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 2000 - Art - 279 pages
This fascinating book provides the first assessment of the artists who have shaped the rich history of art in Texas, from its 19th-century origins to the diversity of the present scene. Published to accompany an exhibition of selected works from the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, this lavishly illustrated volume reveals the complexity of America's most fabled state as seen through the eyes of its leading artists.
The artists highlighted here include figures of national prominence like Robert Wilson; emerging artists such as Helen Altman and Jesse Amado; and artists who have made a significant impact on the evolution of American art, from the Texas-born Robert Rauschenberg to artists who have worked in Texas for extended periods like Rackstraw Downes and Donald Judd. Exploring and exploding the cliches that have defined the Lone Star state and its art, this is an important contribution both to regional history and contemporary art.

Texas: 150 works from the Museum of Fine Arts, HoustonUser Review - Book Verdict
Looking beyond Texas's supposed cowboy heritage, this book and the exhibition it complements should bring some acclaim to another, more complex and interesting Texas. Greene, curator of Houston's Museum of Fine Arts, has selected from that institution's collection a diverse range of paintings and sculpture, all of which were made either in Texas or by a Texas expatriate. Accurately reflecting art's vastness within a vast region, the work included here is sprawling in both style and quality. A few clinkers aside, this is a solid study with many high points, including some outstanding photography and works by luminaries such as Donald Judd and Robert Rauschenberg, to name just two. Greene's detailed history of Texas art is woven throughout the amply illustrated pages, thoughtfully divided into themes limning general topics such as early and contemporary regionalism, nonobjective works, and modernism. Scholars will cherish the 40-page appendix of artist biographies. This highly useful and informative title is recommended for larger art libraries and for any library within spittin' distance of the Rio Grande.DDouglas F. Smith, Oakland P.L., CA ...
