Collecting Art History Taste on the Southern Plains

This exhibit explains how regional collectors brought art masterpieces to West Texas. Visitors can discover trends in art history through a close examination of local donors' objects, including the history and popularity of European porcelain, the rise and fall of the miniature painting as a genre, the centrality of prints for circulating works of art, and the dramatic shift from the pastel pastorals of the Rococo period to the mythological allegories of Neo-Classicism. Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum, 2503 Fourth Ave.
