Frank Reaugh: Landscapes of Texas and the American West August 4–November 29, 2015

Frank Reaugh (1860–1945) is one of the Southwest's earliest and most distinguished artists. Working in the vein of American Impressionism, Reaugh (pronounced "Ray") devoted his career to visually documenting the immense unsettled regions of the Southwest before the turn of the twentieth century. A restless and intrepid traveler, Reaugh sketched scenes while riding with cattlemen during the height of Texas's historic roundups, and he led annual sketch trips to some of Texas's most spectacular and remote locations. Drawing on more than 100 artworks from the Harry Ransom Center's collection, as well as public and private collections across the state, the exhibition showcases Reaugh's approach to landscape painting and his mastery of the pastel medium.
