The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas

Welcome to The Museum of Fine Arts here in H-town! Come see what it has to offer on this visit with me!  The above photo is of the “The Light Inside” the colors change every few minutes.  The museum does a fine job of getting great exhibits along with housing the permanent exhibits.

You’ll find this Joan Miro piece outside the front of the museum.  (1968-81) Titled Oiseau (Bird) (Note:  Houston also has another, colorful Miro piece in downtown Houston called Personage and Birds located in front of the JP Morgan Chase Building)
You’ll see Warhol in the lobby area of the entrance
Interested in this kind of thing – here ya go!
Jackson Pollock’s “Number 6” (1949)
Franz Kline’s “Orange and Black Wall” (1959)

What’s a museum without Vincent van Gogh? “Cottage” (1885)
Pablo Picasso (One of my personal favorites) “Woman With a Large Hat” (1962) (Here he portray’s his second wife, Jacqueline Roque.
