The American art collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, has grown significantly over the past two decades and reached new heights with such spectacular recent acquisitions as Albert Bierstadt’s Indians Spear Fishing and Frank Stella’s Damascus Gate (Stretch Variation III). Along with showcasing artworks from the colonial period to the present, this beautiful and inspiring book explores the museum’s mission of collection-building and how it is exemplified by the generosity of its donors.
