The show is called "Texas Treasures: Early Texas Art from Austin Museums" and is described as:
"...the first collective exhibition of important early Texas artworks from the collections of the University of Texas Blanton Museum, the University of Texas Harry Ransom Center, the Austin Museum of Art, and the Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum.Sounds wonderful!
Drawing from the extensive collections of these Austin institutions, Texas Treasures features more than two dozen masterworks of early Texas art that have been rarely available to the public. These seminal works express the breadth of Texas art: from the origins of classical portraiture and impressionist landscape painting in the nineteenth century, to the American Scene painting of the depression era, to the many interpretations of modernism at the mid-twentieth century."
The Statesman article about Robert Summers is a pretty interesting read about someone with a passion for art: www.austin360.com/arts/content/arts/stories/2009/07/0709texasmodern.html
The slide show with the article has one of my grandfather's paintings:
