A New Look at the Old Masters: European Art from the Houston Collection, 1300-1700

Exhibition October 2, 2021 − January 23
Houston Museum of Fine Arts invites you to visit the exhibition "A New Look at the Old Masters: European Art from the Houston Collections, 1300-1700.".

The works for the exhibition come from the collections of the MFAH and from generous loans from private collectors. These masterpieces represent a diversity of objects, encompassing the richness of European art and shedding new light on the old masters.

The term "Old Masters" refers to artists who worked in Europe from the 13th to the 18th centuries. The works of art they created, including paintings, sculptures, textiles, metalwork, stained glass and works on paper, express a wide range of artistic treasures coveted and appreciated by wealthy patrons, royal courts and the Roman Catholic Church.
