I know, this is hardly local, but bear with me, it is interesting.
While spending the holidays with family, we've visited the McNay Art Museum and the San Antonio Museum of Art.
At the McNay, Reclaimed: Paintings from the Collection of Jacques Goudstikker , a collection of paintings collected by Dutch art dealer Jacques Goudstikker which were pillaged by the Nazis in WWII and only recently returned (in part) to Goudstikker's family.
The exhibition closes on Jan. 10.
Meanwhile, SAMA currently hosts The Arts of the Missions of Northern New Spain: 1600-1821, which features grandiose Catholic art. Most interestingly, the show includes one specimen from the Taylor Collection at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. The piece is a rare hide painting, which was used in the early days of missionary work in Northern New Spain (primarily the southwest states today) as ultra-portable icons.
This exhibition closes on Jan. 3.
