      Called “Radically Beautiful” by the Houston Chronicle, the MFAH exhibit is the only venue for Monet to Picasso: A Very Private Collection and Berthe Morisot: Impressionist Original.  Included are paintings by the artists who sparked the major art movements of the late-19th through mid-20th century, including Mary Cassatt, Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, and Pablo Picasso are shown.

Norman Rockwell: American Freedom (Option)

       Another special exhibit at the MFAH is Norman Rockwell’s iconic depictions of the Four Freedoms outlined by Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Fear, and Freedom from Want. The presentation explores how Rockwell’s 1943 paintings came to be embraced by millions of Americans. These works of art provided crucial aid to the war effort and took their place among the most indelible images in the history of American art.
