Impressionism and Post Impressionism: The Beck Collection
A rich survey from early Impressionism through the big figures of the early 20th century, assembled by Audrey Jones Beck, granddaughter of legendary Houston businessman and philanthropist Jesse Jones. She fell in love with French Impressionism during trips to Paris in the 1930s and 40s and collected “the best she could find” of major artists and lesser-known artists of equal talent. The collection provides an eye-opening overview of the art of Van Gogh’s friends and contemporaries—the art of his times.
