Frank Reaugh's Life and Work

Frank Reaugh's Life and Work

Presented by Harry Ransom Center at Harry Ransom Center

Frank Reaugh was the most improbable of artists, a European-trained Impressionist whose body of work was devoted to Longhorn cattle and the West Texas landscape. With a life bookended by the American Civil War and World War II, he witnessed America’s dramatic transformation from a rural society to an urban-centered powerhouse.

Delve deeper into our current exhibition with an expert panel discussion about Reaugh. Hear from the Ransom Center’s own Curator of Art, Peter Mears, and Head of Exhibition Services Kenneth Grant, joined by Rebecca Lawton, Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art.

Go with your hosts back to the turn of the twentieth century to explore the life and work of Frank Reaugh as they lead a lively discussion of this artist, inventor, and incurable wanderer. Visit the galleries after the discussion to view Frank Reaugh: Landscapes of Texas and the American West.

This program is free and open to the public, but donations are welcome. Seating is first-come, first-served, and doors open at 3:30 p.m.
