Tuesday afternoon at MFAH

Took the day off work to finally see The Heroic Century, the MOMA traveling exhibit which will be at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston through January 4.

Highlights for me were the two Seurats, Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night”, Dali’s “The Persistence of Memory”, and Mondrian’s “Composition in White, Black, and Red”. Also memorable were Henri Rousseau’s “The Dream” and Otto Dix’s “Dr. Mayer-Hermann”.

My biggest disappointment was that there were not more Mondrian paintings in the exhibit (though you could argue that if you’ve seen one of his later paintings…).

Bottom line: If you enjoy 20th century art and live within driving distance of Houston, you will want to see this exhibit.
