Until recently most of these works were virtually impossible to see, even in reproduction. But thanks to the push that MFAH has made over the past few years to make images of almost all permanent collection items available online, you can now get a look at this wealth of earlier Houston art, using the search function available on their website at this link: https://collections.mfah.org/art/ Unfortunately there’s not a database index term that pulls it all up – at least not one that I’ve found (but if there is one that someone can tell me about, I’ll be forever grateful). So search with anything you can think of that might work: artist name, TEXAS, HOUSTON – and browse the results to see the things you’re after. One search that I’ve found useful is ANNUAL EXHIBITION – which gets many of the items that came to the collection as purchase prize winners from the annual juried exhibitions of Houston art held at MFAH from 1925-1961. A few of those prize winners are shown here. Kathleen Blackshear The Strummer 1927 (Purchase prize in 1930) (l) and William McVey Compositional Study 1927 (Purchase prize in 1929) Frances Skinner Exercise for a Rainy Afternoon c.1942 (Purchase prize in 1943) (l) and Jack Boynton Thunderstorm 1955 (Purchase prize in 1955) HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group Earlier Houston Art history notes: The Great Houston Art Hoax of 1935 A previously unknown Houston artist named Louise Metcalf made quite a stir when two of her paintings were accepted for the Houston Annual Exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston in January of 1935. In order to make it into the galleries, which showcased the best work of local artists from the past year, the paintings had to pass muster with a jury made up of some folks who were pretty prominent in the Texas art world at the: Grace Spaulding John, Houston artists; Coreen Spellman, member of the art faculty of the Texas State College for Women in Denton; and Lloyd LaPage Rollins, director of the Dallas Museum of Art. Pass muster they did, and as some of the more daring works exhibited in Houston up to that point, they got lots of notice. Perhaps it’s lucky that they didn’t actually win any of the prizes, however, since it was embarrassing enough that they even made the cut, when it came to light that Louise Metcalf and her art was actually a hoax concocted by Houston Artist, Julian Muench, and Rice University psychology professor, Dr. Frank A. Pattie, each of whom made one of Metcalf’s paintings as part of the plot. Apparently the two were not friends of “Modern” art, and set out to show that anything could make it into the show if it was just outlandish enough. See what you think of Metcalf’s work, shown here along with an article from the newspaper. After the hoax was exposed, the paintings were exhibited in Dallas. Not bad, actually, for a brand new artists to get shown in both major Texas cities, and written up in the newspaper for her very first work. (Of course, nothing like this could ever happen now!) HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group HETAG: The Houston Earlier Texas Art Group Out of Town: JOSE ARPA SPANISH PAINTER IN TEXAS Apr 9, 2016 - Monday Sep 5, 2016 Panhandle Plains Historical Museum Canyon, TX This exhibition will be the first major Jose Arpa exhibition since 1998. It will attempt to add Arpa to the pantheon of Texas artists who brought Impressionism to the Lone Star State and to give a more complete picture of Texas artists contribution to American and world Impressionism. http://panhandleplains.org/gallery.asp?pageid=7&galid=481 Jack Pagan Montrose Boulevard, Houston, Texas 1942 WC 14 x 10 ¾ Randy Tibbits, coordinator HETAG: Houston Earlier Texas Art Group tibbits@rice.edu
