Miss Ima Hogg & Modernism
Saturday, Jul. 27, 2019 – Sunday, Nov. 3, 2019
Ima Hogg is widely known for donating her home—Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens—and her collection of early American decorative arts and paintings to the MFAH in 1957. Nearly two decades before that, she also made a significant gift to the Museum of early 20th-century prints and drawings.
This exhibition marks the 80th anniversary of Hogg’s first major gift of modern European and North American works in 1939, a donation that would continue throughout the next decade.
Miss Ima Hogg & Modernism showcases a selection of these works on paper. Hogg (1882–1975) was one of the first American collectors of modern art in Texas, at a time when avant-garde art was still generally misunderstood. Over the course of her travels in Europe and North America, she amassed an important collection of more than 100 prints and drawings by artists including George Bellows, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Paul Klee, José Clemente Orozco, and Pablo Picasso.
