Imagine being able to view under one roof more than 100 of the most important works of European art, from around 700 bc to the 1940s, ever to have been collected privately in Texas. This stunning catalogue documents that experience and represents the first comprehensive survey of the history of private art collecting in Texas from around 1900 to the present day. More than forty collectors are represented; among the many artists featured are Guido Reni, Rembrandt van Rijn, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso.

Sumptuously illustrated, From the Private Collections of Texas includes comprehensive discussions of each work in the exhibition, many of them never before studied or even published. Photographs of home interiors—both historic and contemporary—play an important role throughout.
