In Houston, the 10-year-old Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts, which closed for renovation after Hurricane Harvey flooded its building in late August 2017, has reopened. The revamped museum is now showing new gifts along with more than 50 outstanding works from a private collection of American art, through Feb. 6, 2019. 

An American View Revisited: The Hosek Collection of American Art is the second time the museum has showcased the extensive collection of Howard (Chip) Hosek, Jr. Originally exhibited at the Pearl during the fall of 2009, the Hosek Collection has continued to expand as the Texan collector has pursued his passion to collect works of art that hold a special interest to him and present the American story. The Hosek Collection, which initially concentrated on American Art from 1850-1950, has grown to include works from the late 20th century, as well as the 21st century.

Highlighted in the exhibition are works from four members of the Wyeth Family, including N.C., Andrew, and Jamie Wyeth, as well as Andrew’s sister, Henriette Wyeth Hurd. Also on view are works by Norman Rockwell, along with Andy Warhol, and numerous other American artists.
