Transcript The Menil Collection The Menil has already garnered national attention for one of the most diverse collections in the nation. Photo by Michael Williams. Years of arduous work and much planning came to a climax during the summer as the Menil Collection was unveiled to the public. The Menil Collection features art from the paleolithic era to the present and was assembled by Dominique de Menil and her late husband, John de Menil. The collection comprises four primary areas; antiquities, Byzantine art, art of tribal cultures and twentieth-century art. It is neither comprehensive in any one, nor does the combination offer an art historical survey in the way that encyclopedic museums do. The second floor contains the storage space for the permanent collection. The paintings and the objects are readily available to scholars and students by appointment, which serves to reem- phasize the importance the Menil Collection places on individual communion with the art. Dominique de Menil was born in 1908 in the Alsace region of France to the Schlumberger family. Her father and uncle founded the Schlumberger business to locate oil deposits. It grew to become the world's largest oil field service company and de Menil is now regularly listed in the Forbes 400 with assets of more than $200 million. The two story 100,000 square foot museum is a highly engineered, white steel glass building completely at home in its neighborhood of small clapboard houses. The structure design allows for a direct yet relaxed relationship between the museum patron and the objects exhibited. The Menil Collection, with its neighboring Rothko Chapel, reinforces Houston as a world class center for the visual arts. — Athena Patelis 28 University of Houston
