Texas Impressionism: Branding with Brushstroke and Color, 1885-1935

This exhibition of over 100 paintings dating 1885-1935 is a landmark exhibition that will demonstrate how Texas artists contributed to and participated in the international style of Impressionism in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The Grace Museum is pleased to host this exhibition organized by leading art historian and curator, Michael Grauer of the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum, Canyon, Tx.  This exhibition is designed to challenge the perception that Impressionism in Texas was provincial and outside the mainstream of American and European art. Important Impressionist works by major artists including Julian Onderdonk, Robert Onderdonk, Jose Arpa, Edward G. Eisenlohr, Ella Koepke Mewhinney, Dawson Dawson-Watson, Seymour Thomas, Lucien Abrams, E. Richardson Cherry and Frank Reaugh.
